How To: Find Your “Friend ID” for Yahoo! My Web 2.0

I was looking for the url that points to my links on Yahoo!’s MyWeb 2.0 social search and social bookmarking product. When I’m logged in, it shows a clean url, but if you’re not logged in as me that generic url wouldn’t take you to my links.

I’m sure there’s an easier way to find this “public url” for your links, but I had a hard time finding it just now. Here’s how you can do it relatively quickly:

  1. Remember one of your most-recent or unique tags (that you’ve used to save a bookmark to MyWeb)
  2. Log out of Yahoo!
  3. Go to the “Everyone’s Tags” page and do a search for your tag.
  4. In the results, find your name in the “Shared by” of a link with that tag. Click your name.
  5. Copy that url, it’s the public view of your MyWeb page. Here’s mine.

This process could be smoother, but it must be on the to-do list. Others get it right, like Y!360, Y!Calendar, del.icio.us and Flickr. They all use your username in the url of your page: http://360.yahoo.com/triz_n, http://calendar.yahoo.com/triz_n, http://del.icio.us/natekoechley, http://flickr.com/photos/natekoechley/.

By the way, have you claimed your MyWeb badge yet?
