Together with today's Yahoo! Go 3.0 announcement, Yahoo! unveiled Yahoo! onePlace - a revolutionary mobile content management solution. Yahoo! onePlace is designed to be an essential tool to enable consumers to better manage the wide selection of content available across the Internet.
Yahoo! onePlace will bring together a consumer's interests, passions and important information into a single location - creating a rich and highly personalized experience. Everything is instantly organized, dynamically kept current, and served to them the way they want.

Yahoo! onePlace is designed to include the following features, which will allow consumers to:

  • Centralized and Open Content Management - Centralize and manage all the content they care about, from anywhere on the Internet, accessible from a single location and arranged to best meet their preferences. The product is also designed to allow consumers to link to any favorite content they've already personalized on the Yahoo! network (e.g., MyYahoo!, flickr, del.icio.us) or at other popular websites (e.g., Digg, Last.FM, reddit, Yelp).
  • Personalized Views - Enjoy their content based on their specific needs:
    • Collections - Group content in a way that makes sense. For example, create a collection related to an upcoming trip or of favorite 80s bands.
    • Categories - Organize content according to commonly-used subjects (e.g., celebrities, local businesses, sports), making it easy to access and retrieve.
    • Pulse - Stream updates relevant to users' content, such as flight status changes, new songs by a favorite music artist or a restaurant review.
    • Favorites - Surface the content a consumer uses most frequently.
  • Dynamic updates - See previews for selected sources that are kept fresh throughout the day - giving users a single location for a view of what's going on across their world.
  • Mobile RSS reader - Use a mobile RSS reader integrated into Yahoo! onePlace - providing a simple way to read and subscribe to their favorite feeds.
  • Smart organization - Create a rich experience around a specific topic by grouping whatever content they find most useful.

Yahoo! onePlace will be simple-to-use because it will be based on a familiar process of using bookmarks to instantly link to practically any piece of content (news feeds, web sites, videos, images, emails, search queries, etc.) from anywhere across the Internet. Once in Yahoo! onePlace, everything will be kept automatically updated (with the latest game score, stock price, etc.) as well as assigned categories and tags - or placed into customized "collections" that consumers create - making it extremely intuitive for consumers to find and combine their content in the ways most useful to them.

Yahoo! onePlace will allow consumers to stay better informed on the topics they care about, with less work - for their daily interests (e.g., favorite sports teams or stocks), as well as those they only care about on a selective basis. For example, if a user is planning a holiday to Paris in June, he could create a "Paris" collection, and begin linking it to any information he thinks will be useful to him on his trip: weather conditions, city guides, restaurant reviews, hotel reservations, walking maps, songs of Edith Piaf, English-French dictionaries, winery recommendations, etc. Yahoo! onePlace will give consumers a single location to consume all of their information contextually, keeping it updated (so they know, for example, if their flight times have changed) and instantly accessible whenever and however they want it. The product will be configured to allow consumers to do the same for literally hundreds of different topics.

Yahoo! onePlace is expected to launch, along with Yahoo! oneConnect, in Q2 2008, joining Yahoo!'s award-winning mobile product portfolio, which includes Yahoo! Go 3.0, Yahoo!'s new mobile homepage and Yahoo! oneSearch. After its release, Yahoo! onePlace is expected to become available across hundreds of devices and mobile browsers around the world.

Cheers ~ Arne
