Yahoo! Personals signed in home page relaunches



The Personals product team has been working on upgrading our Personals site and user experience for a while now, but this latest release transforms one of the most visited parts of the service–the Signed In Home page, the log in page for both searchers and posters.
The team’s worked hard to re-think this page to offer more efficiency, speed, and value–the new design offers a hierarchy of critical activities (checking messages and who’s viewed you, searching for matches, editing your profile) in a way that makes them more accessible and info rich right on this one page; there’s also a new search feature we call the Carousel which allows a searcher to look at relevant search results right from the signed in home page, rather than having to go to search results.
We’ve just released, so we’re still watching stats and user feedback, but it’s looking good.
I’m also pleased about the development path the Front End engineers followed to build this–we have a new modular development framework that adds speed and flexibility to the work flow–and a much richer look and feel.
