Big changes coming to Yahoo

Created: 03/06/2014 7:13 AM WHEC.com

There are some new changes coming to Yahoo.

The company will no longer allow users to access its services with their Facebook or Google log-ins. That means users will be required to register for a Yahoo ID in order to use any of its online services. So, you might want to dust off your old Yahoo account or create a new one.
 
The company is planning to offer up new apps, new sites and other improvements. This is just the latest move by Yahoo to spark new interest in the company's web products.
 
The first Yahoo service to require an ID will be the "Pick Em" platform which focuses on the upcoming NCAA college basketball tournament.
 
Eventually, the sign in buttons for Facebook and Google will be removed from all Yahoo properties.  
 
Yahoo has said the change will be rolled out gradually.
