Yoono for Internet Explorer

CNET Editors' review

Social-networking sites are meant to help us keep up with our friends, but they often end up taking up way more of our time than they should. Yoono for Internet Explorer is a clever browser extension that lets you merge all of your social-networking and chat services into one unobtrusive interface.

The extension installs easily, and it's evident from the moment the extension launches that Yoono's designers are pros; the sidebar that contains Yoono has a sleek and attractive look. Users are walked through the steps of configuring Yoono, which includes selecting all of the social networking services that are to be connected. The options include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, YouTube, FriendFollow, LinkedIn, and Foursquare, as well as the chat services Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AIM, and Google Talk. Once Yoono is configured, a feed combining updates from all of the selected services appears in the sidebar. The sidebar also contain a Discovery tab that holds a variety of different types of Internet searches, as well as a button for sharing links with some or all of your networks. Users can post status updates to all of their networks at once, receive notifications of new messages, and chat with users on the various chat services, all from one discreet interface. The sidebar can be hidden and viewed with the click of a button. Overall, we were impressed with Yoono, with one exception: after we had selected several social networks that we wanted to use with Yoono, we found it impossible to access the list of available services to select additional ones. The extension's documentation includes instructions for the initial configuration, but no guidance on making changes after that. This was frustrating, and we hope that future versions will correct this problem. Still, on the whole, Yoono is a great way to integrate all of your chatting and social networking activities in one compact interface.

Yoono for Internet Explorer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this extension to all users.

    "It di not work at all"

    November 8, 2011  |   By AspieMum

    Version: Yoono for Internet Explorer 6.1

    Pros

    None. None. (I couldn't just write none as its a 10 character minimum).

    Cons

    It did not work. It opened a blank side bar and a page with an error message saying page forbidden because you need to sign in but there was never any chance to sign in or register. I have a Yoono account from using Yoono with Firefox but no sign in section ever appeared on the screen in any form. It was totally useless.

    Summary

    If you want to use Yoono switch browsers or download the desktop version from yoono's website.

    "Easier to uninstall than to install and set up"

    January 23, 2011  |   By dee50f

    Version: Yoono for Internet Explorer 6.1

    Pros

    Would be good if I were able to set it up for all (or both) my social networks

    Cons

    First, the social network list refused to show itself. After re-install, only 1 site showed up on the list. Way too much work for what it does, so I uninstalled the same day.

    Summary

    For me, not worth the trouble to install, even for free.
