Facebook and Google login credentials will not be allowed

If you want to use Yahoo's services, you're going to need to play by Yahoo's rules. 

According to Reuters, Yahoo is going to eventually remove all sign-in buttons for Facebook and Google on its Web services. For access, you'll have to sign up for a Yahoo ID. 

This means that users can no longer sign in to Yahoo's online services with Facebook or Google credentials. The first Yahoo service to boot Facebook and Google is Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick'Em, which is geared toward the NCAA college basketball tournament. The use of Yahoo IDs began Monday for this service. 
 

Others, such as  Fantasy Sports and photo-sharing site Flickr, are expected to follow until a Yahoo ID is required for all Yahoo services. There is currently no known timeframe for the rollout. 

"Yahoo is continually working on improving the user experience," said Yahoo. "[The Yahoo IDs] will allow us to offer the best personalized experience to everyone."

Yahoo likely wants more users to sign up for Yahoo IDs, and for those who use certain services like Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick'Em, this could be a good way to grab those extra sign-ups.
