by Pete Cashmore

Yahoo Local is the latest Yahoo site to get a major makeover, as part of the continued renewal of Yahoo’s portals. It’s a radical change for the established Yahoo property.

As you might expect, the new Yahoo Local is trying to pack in more community features and integrate with Yahoo’s other properties., Yahoo’s event planning site, is now prominent in the events section, while Yahoo Maps also makes an appearance. The new Weekend Guide (US only), meanwhile, integrates both Flickr photos and Upcoming events.
