Yahoo says that it's now able to pull in names for email addresses as well as profile photos now with the help from its Twitter and LinkedIn partnership. It will also display links to these social profiles, in addition to Facebook and Yahoo's photo-sharing service Flickr.

The new update makes the contact cards feature more competitive with LinkedIn's own email plug-in Rapportive, which also displays a contact's information in their inbox, including their name, title, company and various social profiles but its product is compatible only with Gmail.

The email address of the person users are checking out needs to be the one they've associated with their social profile for Yahoo new service work properly. Users will also have to authenticate with Twitter and LinkedIn. For that users have to go to Yahoo Mail's 'Settings' section where the various social services can be connected.
