It’s always nice when people share, right? Therefore, it stands to reason that it’s also nice when websites share. Yahoo and Twitter have entered into a deal that will allow content-sharing across both sites. This move is excellent for the floundering Yahoo. Yahoo and Facebook entered into a similar deal a few months ago, making it easier for users to share Facebook status updates and other information on Yahoo or share Yahoo sports scores or Flickr photos on Facebook.
The partnerships with Twitter and Facebook will take effect later this year. The partnership with Twitter will allow users to take material from both sites without having to leave either one. Specifically, users will be able to access their Twitter feed on Yahoo’s sites, update their Twitter status and share content from Yahoo in their Twitter feed, while Yahoo search and media properties will include Twitter updates.
What are your thoughts on these partnerships? Will this change the way you “do” social media? Or, will it have zero effect on your daily life?
