You will notice a cool new Yahoo! Answers feature that will allow you to share your Answers content with your Facebook friends! This means your friends on Facebook can now help you answer your questions if you choose to share them. Your Facebook friends can also join Yahoo! Answers and connect with our amazing community to have the many questions they have answered.
What are the benefits?
One of the many advantages of social networking sites is having the ability to connect with thousands of people. Linking your Answers account with your Facebook account increases the number of people that can answer your questions! Some of the benefits are:
- Make it easier for your non-Answers friends to answer your questions if you choose to share them beyond Answers
- If you choose to share your great answers with your Facebook friends too then they will see your answers right at the top of the list when coming to Answers from Facebook
On the `Preview` page you’ll see the check-boxes for where you want to share your questions and answers to. The setting you choose here will be the default for all of your content but you have the option to change this with every posting. This gives you full control over which info you want to share with your friends and those questions you want to ask only to the Answers community.
Things to keep in mind:
If you do decide to share your Answers activity with your friends on Facebook, keep in mind that your Answers screen name will be visible. Your Answers activity will be associated with your Facebook identity and vice versa, which means your Facebook friends will be able to see all your Answers activity (including past activity). If your friends on Facebook ‘like’ your question, their contacts will be able to see this activity too.
Remember, more visibility to your questions means more answers from a wider range of contacts so we hope you will find the new Facebook integration a useful addition to your Answers experience!
Once you have started sharing your Answers and Facebook accounts, “tell us what you think” on the Forum or leave your comments here, on the blog.
