News for You
The News for You module shows popular news content that may be personalized for you based on factors like past reading activity. In cases where it shows suggested topics of interest, logged-in users may declare topics of interest and receive some content based on their interests. Your suggested topics may be based on popular topics or topics based on your Yahoo! News activity. You may add and subtract topics of interest using the Media Interest Manager. You can manage your topics of interest by selecting and deselecting items under the “All Topics” section and then clicking “Save Interests”.
Yahoo! Activity allows you to automatically share the Yahoo! activity you view with your friends and easily discover things that are interesting to them.

You can turn off automatic sharing by clicking on the “Social” drop-down menu where you see the sharing bar. You can also remove individual articles you’ve shared by clicking on the “Your Activity” drop-down menu.
