A Look-See at Yahoo's New Open and Social Launch!

Yesterday, Yahoo held a San Francisco event where it finally launched a lot of the new open and social elements that it has long said it was injecting into its most popular products.

For a look-see, here is a Yahoo (YHOO) video about the launch and some screenshots of the changes (click on the images to make them larger):
