Shows profile photos, facebook apps info in Yahoo search results
….Whola I found your information so easily on Yahoo search!
Yahoo Search has launched a new feature that automatically shows Facebook profile photos in its search results. Now, when someone searches for your name on Yahoo, they can see your Facebook profile photo in the search listings.
Here is a sneak peak:
This is made possible by Yahoo SearchMonkey application that reads structured data published by Facebook. Yahoo’s SearchMonkey platform allows developers to use structured data to make their Yahoo Search results more visually interesting and useful. In this case, Facebook is showing links to certain features (Add friend, Poke, Send message, View friends) and displaying a profile photo. Thanks to Yahoo’s SearchMonkey, you’ll be able to poke your friend’s right from a page of Yahoo search results.
The new feature only works for people who have their “public search listing” privacy settings turned on. To see what your public search listing privacy settings are, click here.
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.
