To invite people to join your site from your Yahoo account, go to ‘People’ and use ‘Invite’ on the Toolbar. In the left hand column you will see a list of services to invite from and in the right hand column you will see subject and body text boxes within which you can write your message.
In the column on the left click the Yahoo panel. Next click the ‘Invite your contacts from Yahoo’. This will open up a new window allowing your to login to your Yahoo account. You will be asked to authorise the site to access your contacts. Your list of contacts will then be displayed. Select the ones you want to send the invite to and click ‘Share contacts’. When you are asked to confirm this action, click ‘Send’. Your selected contacts will then appear in the panel in your site.
Now you can type in your own personal message into the panel on the right. When you have finished your email, click ‘Send’. Your mail will include a link to the login/join page of your site.
