Sunnyvale, Calif.—Yahoo announced Tuesday that it has acquired Koprol, a Jakarta, Indonesia-based company that allows users to share photos, reviews and other information via mobile phone browsers. Yahoo said it plans to leverage the information generated by Koprol users to give its home page and other applications increased local relevance.

“Users are increasingly relying on mobile devices to communicate and access the Internet, and they are looking for seamless integration between those devices and PCs. This is especially true in many emerging markets where we are introducing the Yahoo brand to many new-to-Net users,” Rose Tsou, senior VP-Asia region at Yahoo, said in a statement.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
