There’s some big news that has a “connection” to your Mail experience. If you checked your profile over the weekend, you may have noticed things look a little different. Last Thursday we rolled out an all-new profile for Yahoo! users, geared towards a more “open and social” Yahoo!.
The update includes a sneak peek of what your Address Book/Contacts experience will be like down the road, which is something Mail users should be interested especially in. There’s also an important change for users who have created an alias for their account, so if that’s you make sure you read on.
To get started, you’ll need to go to: http://profiles.yahoo.com/ to begin setting up your new profile. When you log in, it should automatically pull in your old profile data, and will give you the opportunity to update your information.
The new profile provides users with a single identity while they’re on the Yahoo! network, consolidating your aliases into one account with your main profile. This doesn’t, however, mean that you can’t still have an “alias” while you’re on the Yahoo! network – you can still use multiple identities on Groups, Chat, or Finance. However, these aliases CANNOT have their own profile page, nor can they have any unique profile data associated with them.
To learn more about editing and managing your new profile on Yahoo!, be sure to visit the profiles news blog for more information, as well as tips on how to manage your aliases and profiles within the network.
