Yahoo in log-in ban

Yahoo will stop letting consumers access its various online services, including Fantasy Sports and photo-sharing site Flickr, by logging in with their Facebook or Google IDs.

The change, which will be rolled out gradually according to a Yahoo spokeswoman, will require users to register for a Yahoo ID in order to use any of the internet portal's services.

The move marks the latest change by chief executive Marissa Mayer (above), who is trying to spark fresh interest in the company's web products and to revive its stagnant revenue.
