    • This information is optional and will be used to contact you regarding the feedback that you have provided to us.

Yahoo Social Bar

  • Yahoo Social Bar allows you to automatically share the Yahoo activity you view with your friends and easily discover things that are interesting to them.
    • When you opt-in to Yahoo Social Bar, Yahoo will automatically share links to the Yahoo activity you view to both your friends on Facebook and to your Facebook friends on Yahoo.
    • You can turn off automatic sharing by clicking on the “Social” drop-down menu in “You on Yahoo News” on the Yahoo News page. You can also remove individual articles you’ve shared by clicking on the “Your Activity” drop-down menu in “You on Yahoo News”.
