For a long time the comment section on any webpage was nothing more than internet real estate about to be foreclosed on. Plagued by spammers, pointless shout outs, and unreal amounts of bickering, most users chose to forgo perusing what was once a land of potential user interaction.

There are many ways for websites to tap into online social networking services to allow their users to connect with each other. Now, for publishers who want to add social network functions to already existing websites, Yahoo! has announced their new Updates API, a web service that provides permission-based access to the actions of any user with a Yahoo! account.
