We are introducing two new, important features today on Yahoo! Image search to help users get the best out of searching for photos online: social sharing and continuous scrolling.
Yahoo! Image Search now provides the ability to share any image through Facebook and Twitter. By clicking on the image from the search results page, users can browse effortlessly through full-size images via the desktop browser and share with their preferred network of family and friends.
In addition to social sharing, users can scroll down the Yahoo! Image search results to see more and more photos! Type a query for a current event and users will see photos pertaining to breaking news, along with the ability to continuously scroll through the results – all unique to Yahoo! Image Search.
Available for all four sections – Top Images, Latest, Galleries and Facebook – we believe the continuous scrolling and social sharing features will provide the most effective discovery and sharing experience for all image search queries. This, together with the richer content that is uniquely offered by Yahoo!, will offer users an even better, more immersive search experience.
So what are you waiting for, check out some amazing examples below and start scrolling pages of photos on Yahoo! Image Search today!
