Yahoo Adds Facebook As A SearchMonkey Friend
Thanks to Yahoo’s SearchMonkey, you’ll be able to poke your friends right from a page of Yahoo search results. Yahoo has announced that Facebook enhanced results are now turned on by default across Yahoo search results. This means that any Facebook user who has allowed his/her profile to be publicly viewable and searchable can now be seen in the Yahoo search results with enhanced Facebook data.
Here’s an enhanced result for Danny Sullivan:
The main link points to Danny’s Facebook profile, and there are additional links to add Danny as a friend, view his friends, send him a message, and … what you’ve always wanted to do … poke him!
Facebook is the seventh SearchMonkey app to be turned on for all Yahoo search users. The others are LinkedIn, Yelp, Yahoo Local, Citysearch, Zagat, and Wikipedia.
