Wonder why you’re now often seeing what your friends are reading about on Yahoo! News? It’s really because of the Yahoo!’s Social Bar feature, which integrates Facebook to its news portal division. Yahoo! has just extended this feature to encompass its South East Asia and India markets, meaning you can get hop into it now and give it a spin.

The feature uses a simple opt-in process, and you can turn it on or off whenever you want. Using it will let users see what you’re reading and what your other pals are on – it also makes sharing news much easier. Yahoo! has, in fact, touted that it lets users add friends as ‘social editors’. Cool.
