Socialize with Yahoo Mail

Socialize with Yahoo Mail, yes with new Yahoo mail allows you to send text messages directly to cell phones. With Yahoo! Mail, people can send and receive free text messages in their email to and from any mobile phone number in participating markets including the US, Canada, India and the Philippines.
In addition one can instant-message chat with users of Yahoo or Microsoft's IM services. But I think SMS or the text messaging will take off as so many are texting today. The text messaging feature is integrated into the interface and works in almost exactly the same way as standard emailing, but users enter a phone number instead of an email address. Each message is limited to 150 characters. Unlike a traditional email inbox, the system creates an instant message style interface to allow users to track the course of the conversation.
