yahoo-logo-2013-270x167Internet giant Yahoo will stop allowing users from accessing its services using a Google or Facebook account. This will coerce users to sign into Yahoo services with a Yahoo ID across all services offered by Yahoo. On the good side, one Yahoo ID can now be seamlessly used across all Yahoo services.

Currently, Fantasy Sports and Flick are the hardest hit as users will be required to sign into these sites with Yahoo accounts only. Just in case, you don’t have one, you might want to sign up now for the love of NFL play on Fantasy Sports of photo streaming on Flickr.

That’s what precisely former Googler and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer intends to do. However, sugar coating the harsh move against Facebook and Google, Yahoo proclaimed that it was only doing it to improve user experience.

Assuming you didn’t miss that ‘One Account. All of Google’ punchline on Google’s homepage, we are driven to believe that Yahoo intends to collect user data from its web services to personalize their user experience and provide them with better suggestions and data more relevant to their interests. The way that Google has been doing, and we just cannot deny of  how much we love it.


This transition of access control “to offer the best personalised experience to everyone” will be gradually executed and might take some time. While this move may certain bulge the money bags at Yahoo, there is a possible chance that users may actually sway into the affinity of Google instead of signing up for Yahoo. Isn’t Yahoo politely trying to force users to signup. Perhaps, nevertheless, it’s a competitive world and an even more competitive world wide web.

We will keep you posted as more details surface. Stay tuned!
