Yahoo Wants People to Share - NYTimes.com

One of many intriguing aspects of the F8 keynote yesterday: imagine a world without Google – Yahoo for news, Bing for maps, Netflix and Hulu for video, …  Facebook was clear about having multiple partners in each major media category, but some friends appeared to be closer than others.

At the top of Yahoo news pages, users will see images of their Facebook friends who are also signed up. Clicking on the images brings up a list of Yahoo news articles that those people have read. Individual articles will be stamped with names of friends who have read them, as in “Steve Smith and two others have read this.” Automatic updates on Facebook will also tip off friends to what people are reading.
