As Yahoo! continues to step up their integration with Facebook the company is now enabling users to reply directly to wall posts directly from their email inbox. As the image below illustrates, users are presented with a Facebook-like comment box for responding to status comments or any wall post. Most recently Flickr added full their own integration with Facebook, and it appears that Yahoo! overall integration is continuing.
We previously wrote about a feature that enables users to update their status with Yahoo! mail, yet this is simply an additional feature. Yahoo! also has a special partnership with Facebook which enables users to import their friends’ email addresses, something that Facebook has always been criticized for not letting users easily accomplish.
While this isn’t a huge feature, it’s interesting to see how tightly integrated Yahoo! is becoming with Facebook. Now if only Gmail could add extensive Facebook functionality!
