You must have Yahoo messenger for this to work, and yes all it does is save you copy and pasting a thread link into yahoo messenger:D

Its not to show your Yahoo! Messenger status, its like 'Tell a friend about this post' . It will be like 'Tell a friend on yahoo messenger (like in chat window) about this page'.

Please correct me if i am wrong!
