Yahoo! Pulse is aimed at helping you remain in touch with your contacts. You can search Yahoo! Pulse to find the user profiles of your family members, friends, co-workers and other contacts. The service has replaced Yahoo! Profiles and has several new features, such as increased profile security and updates with photos and links. Yahoo! Pulse lets you search for users based on several forms of information to accurately narrow your search and find your contacts.
