According to a recent report by Reuters, Yahoo has decided to stop access to its services with Facebook and Google IDs, which will mean in order to use any of Yahoo’s services you will need a Yahoo ID in the future.
This will apparently be rolled out to all of Yahoos services, which will include Flickr and more, there is a statement from Yahoo below, explaining why this is being done.
“Yahoo is continually working on improving the user experience,” the company said in a statement, noting that the new process “will allow us to offer the best personalized experience to everyone”.
This will apparently be rolled out gradually to all of Yahoo’s services, and will start with the Yaoo Sports Tourney Pick’Em service which is focused on NCAA college basketball.
Yahoo are obviously hoping that by making users have their own Yahoo ID, this will help spread engagement across more of the services it offers.
