MyBlog Loggers and Yahoo

Hello, MyBlogLoggers: It took a long time for word to get out about our changeover to Yahoo! IDs. Lesson learned. This time we're reaching out to you via old-fashioned email.

In a couple weeks, we'll be launching a new feature called New with Me. This feature will use the URLs on the Services tab of your MyBlogLog profile to aggregate your latest activity on sites such as Twitter, Last.fm, Digg, and YouTube.

Helge: MyBlog is one of those service I use occasionally. It helps me to leave a trace with a photo to the pages and blogs I have visited. My profile will change, okay, need to go there a and check-out. The promise: my static profile will become a dynamic one. This service helps me to be seen online and I see who comes to my blogs and sites. Cool!

As a result, your profile page will look different - publicly available updates from the services you have listed will be merged with your existing information. Your latest Flickr photos, Last.fm tracks, and YouTube videos, will all be in one place. Updates from your contacts on MyBlogLog will be merged and available as well. Simply put, the New with Me feature will transform your static profile into a dynamic one.

MyBlogLog respects your privacy. We will aggregate and display only information that is publicly available. If you're uncomfortable with MyBlogLog aggregating and displaying publicly available information from a particular service, you can remove that service from your profile at any time.

Of course, we hope you're excited about the broader distribution of everything you produce on the Web. If you use any of the sites featured in the Services tab, you know the value of being able to display all your activity in one place.

Your MyBlogLog profile, About Me widget, and Email Signature were the first steps in distributing your Web identity. New with Me is the next, pulling together a unified picture of who you are on the distributed social Web.

We have lots of cool things planned for this feature -- I hope you'll use it to help build the next generation of the Web. For details, please check out our FAQ on this feature. As always, check our blog for the latest news from us. See you online!
