Yahoo's MyBlogLog to incorporate Twitter, YouTube, more.

Late today, MyBlogLog Product Manager Ian Kennedy advised some significant new features and changes to the popular blog networking platform.

The new feature set is called 'New with You' and will allow users to share their most recent activity across numerous other services such as Twitter,, Digg, and YouTube and other services, directly on their current MyBlogLog profile page (which will be changing soon to reflect the new features).

In essence, MyBlogLog profile pages will become dynamic, rather than static.

Some may have noticed that a small implementation of this has been visible at the very top of the profile pages for Twitter users over the past 2 months or so.

Acccording to Kennedy, any or all of the feeds may be turned on or off by the user as desired.

Some information has already be posted to the MyBlogLog FAQ page .

Update 1 Feb 16 PM: The first announcement has been posted to the MyBlogLog blog here and it answers 2 very important questions. (1) If you don't want you're online life profiled, opt out now. The default is ON (2) The new features should start to become visible in less than a week.
