Yahoo Ditching Facebook and Google Login Support

Yahoo recently revealed plans to cease support for third-party logins. In 2011, Yahoo made it possible to sign into some of its services with a Facebook or Google account. The change effectively reverses that decision. Yahoo will eventually require users to sign in with a Yahoo ID for all its services. The first Yahoo service to require a Yahoo ID is Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick'Em, which already enacted the change. Yahoo will begin to remove the Facebook and Google sign-in buttons from all its sites and services. The company did not say how quickly the change will be complete. According to Yahoo, the Yahoo ID requirement "will allow [it] to offer the best personalized experience to everyone."

Big Mistake

I use some Yahoo services through my google login, mainly becuase it's easy and I didn't have to sign up for anything else. Once they make this change, I will stop using Yahoo, and so will thousands of others, probably.

Big mistake
what do you expect they want their accounts to be used for their products pretty much, dont see that driving away as many as you think, a lot of people have some type of yahoo account already
I have to think that if there was a large number of uses who do not have a Yahoo! account but log in through Facebook or Google that they would keep the option.
