Last night I was looking up a phone number for my wife and I noticed that Yahoo People Search has been totally redesigned and repurposed. The new design is extremely clean, compared to the old interface. In addition, when you conduct the search, it takes you directly into the Yahoo Search interface, as opposed to just showing you phone numbers.

Here is the before screen shot that I took back in May 2004:

Here is the new home page for Yahoo People Search:

Yahoo People Search Now

Here is the search results page for a search conducted in Yahoo People Search:

Yahoo People Search Now

By the way, Yahoo was able to find the phone number I was looking for, while Google failed in that search.

I really like the new interface and manner in which Yahoo People Search functions. So good job on this Yahoo. I have no idea when this was launched, it may have been months ago, but I have not read or seen any reports on this new launch.
