Recently Yahoo announced that it will be giving its popular mail service a makeover. One of the newest features will be an email-to-phone connection that will allow users to trade messages with using their mobile phones.
This effort will create a more social and convenient method of checking email for the over 250 million Yahoo Mail users currently registered.
John Kremer, vice president of Yahoo Mail, said in an interview with Reuters, “Our goal is to make (Yahoo) Mail a more social experience. We really look at ourselves as sitting on top of the largest dormant social network out there.”
The company is already planning on testing other social networking features this year, attempting to keep the portal up to date with the social network trend as many users are spending the bulk of their time on social networks as opposed to portals.
