Yahoo further integrates Facebook into e-mail app

Published on .

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Yahoo Inc. has added a new feature to its e-mail application, allowing users to update their Facebook status directly within Yahoo Mail. The service will be rolled out gradually in “select markets,” according to Yahoo.

To use the service, Yahoo Mail users must link their Yahoo and Facebook accounts from within Yahoo Mail. After that, users can type a message within the mail application that will appear automatically on Facebook, Yahoo Mail or both. In return, Facebook profile photos that link to Facebook will be displayed within Yahoo e-mails.

Last month, Yahoo provided a way to import Facebook friends’ e-mail addresses into Yahoo Contacts.
