Yahoo Mail is starting to look like Facebook

Poor old Yahoo! They really are trying to give their mail service social networking features. To be fair to them, with the success of Facebook and Twitter, can you blame them for wanting to get in on the action?

However they are starting to copy Facebook with some of the same features they are adding to their site! You can now comment or “Like” Updates that you see on the What’s New page in Yahoo! Mail. “You can even post Facebook status updates from inside Yahoo Mail. And the latest example, users can now comment on and also ‘like’ your status updates”.

The same principle from Facebook that we all know applies; beneath your message there are two links which are comment and like. Clicking on “like” will add you onto a list of people that liked that message. Clicking “comment” will open a box under the message where you can leave a response or opinion. Have a look at Softpedia.com for the views of a person that works for Yahoo.

So do you think that Yahoo have gone to far, or they they just trying to make themselves more desirable by using features they know are popular? Let us know what you think.

    Yahoo should stick with what they do best and what people love them for – Email. They shouldn't try to do what Facebook does, because there's no way they can compare. No one needs to use Yahoo as a pseudo-Facebook tool, when they already have Facebook.
