How to Network on Facebook through Yahoo Messenger


The estimated reading time for this post is 1 minutes

I used to use Yahoo Messenger to network a lot. I have over a thousand friends on yahoo messenger. I use it to network even on my mobile phone. Recently Yahoo! Messenger and Facebook gave we users the opportunity to network with Facebook friends and families through Yahoo messenger.

To achieve this, Yahoo recently released a beta version of Yahoo! Messenger 11 to the public which, aside from the usual features (instant messaging, text, voice and video calls+webcam) allows users to play social games, manage multiple social network accounts and chat with Facebook friends.

With Yahoo! Messenger 11 beta, users will be able to play social games from Zynga, Elex and OMGPOP like Balloono, Pool, Happy Harvest, Happy Manor and popular Facebook games Fishville and Mafia Wars with their friends. Users can also share their Facebook status directly on Yahoo Messenger.

Yahoo! Messenger 11 also allows users to manage their social networks directly from the IM client. Users can view, comment, like and post updates on multiple social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Yahoo! Pulse, etc including Facebook Chat support with which you can chat with your buddies on Facebook directly from Yahoo! Messenger.

To get started, download the new Yahoo! Messenger 11 Beta and start networking more. The bigger your network is, the better your net worth. Go to and download your free copy.

    Hi Adesoji,

    To be frank with you, I can’t remember when last I used Yahoo messenger since the invention of 2go, BBM, Whatsapp and the like. And gone are those days where Yahoo messenger is the best means of social communication aside from Facebook and some other social platform. Nonetheless, since most people are in the same shoe with me and they cannot do without accessing their Facebook account in 48 hours to know what is currently on the floor, I think this is a nice move for both Facebook and Yahoo to bring what has lost from Yahoo back to live. I have not tried the app though, but hopefully, it’s going to be one of its kind to give a edge ahead of all apps.

    This is nice, the app is really cool. Though I have not use any of the previous version before, so I don’t even know how the app works.

    Reading this makes me wonder how the previous version looks like, but the present Beta text (version 11) is awesome. Should I say their partnership with Facebook makes it this good or that’s how it is before, I guess yes..

    One of the things I like about this App is the ability to play Social Games, this will make the chatting more fun, most especially when the chat is getting boring, playing a game will bring back the fun and make the chat more interesting.

    I think another one is the combination of 2 social network into one App.. Its cool cause you don’t have to switch to Facebook app when you have a message, you can also reply using the Yahoo M 11 and also do more stuffs on FaceBook using the App.

    Hoping for the full version of the app soon, but I will still check out the beta version to get use to it till the final release.

    Thanks for the information, hoping for more.
