Yahoo Urges Users to Review Privacy Settings
SOCIAL NETWORKINGJune 3, 2010
In preparation for unveiling its new social networking option to its users, Yahoo is advising its 280 million e-mail accountholders to review their privacy settings, the Associated Press reports. Yahoo has posted a privacy reminder in connection with its plans for a new service that will share e-mail users' online activities and interests with their saved contacts unless they disable the feature. Yahoo is trying to avoid a privacy backlash by providing a one-click option for opting out of its new social features.
