Yahoo! News today launched “Yahoo! News friends” activity feature that lets people share what they’re reading on Yahoo! News to their Facebook friends both on Yahoo! and Facebook.
This is an entirely opt-in feature, giving you complete control of when you want to turn it on and off or if you just want to delete a single item.
“You can now discover content through your friends, connect with people through their reading activity and express yourself on your Facebook profile through the articles that interest you.”
Also, it’s now possible for you to “share your TV watching activity into Facebook through IntoNow from Yahoo!. This activity will be aggregated on people’s Facebook profile under “Most Watched” and “Most Recently Watched”,” stated Yahoo.
Look out for an updated IntoNow from Yahoo! mobile app with this added functionality in the coming weeks.
In order to join the experience, go here and click on any story in news. Then click “Connect with Facebook” button at the top of the page to get started.
