Personals are a big part of the affiliate world, this will change the landscape:

hmmmm, this is interesting.

I wonder if they'll offer an affiliate program along with it - pretty common for personals. I don't recall yahoo ever having any kind of affiliate program?

I'll bet they try to go it alone, sans affiliate program. They'll be banking on their own strength as a brand. This will cause a major shift to those affiliates well-placed in the SERPS as the users go searching for free or cheap(er) sites.

There's some coin to be made on this if you're in this market.
