On the Yahoo! Mail team, we have no shortage of big personalities and big brains. We’re a diverse family of technical and creative talent dedicated to making Yahoo! Mail the best email experience for you. We love what we do, and we wanted to share with you some of our thinking as well as introduce you to some members of our team.
Today we’re featuring Rick Pal, who is the product manager responsible for Yahoo! Contacts and for making Yahoo! Mail more social and connected. Yahoo! Mail is not just about sending and receiving emails; it’s also about helping you keep in touch to the people who matter most to you. In this interview, Rick discusses the thinking behind why Yahoo! Mail is becoming more social, and why we brought in Facebook to improve user experiences in Mail, Contacts, and more. Check out this video clip and feel free to give us feedback about what you like (or don’t like) about these new social features. Enjoy!
