Updates (user event stream) api

I have few questions about "Updates / Yahoo!'s user event stream" integration point.

  1. To post to this stream from an Open App, do I use "Yahoo! Social Platform API". e.g. following URI
    CODE
    http://social.yahooapis.com/v1/user/{guid}/updates/{source}/{suid}
  2. The screen shot has update specific image(s) in some cases. If Social Platform API is to be used, the sample there does not include an example for that. Can you please provide an example?
  3. Is YML allowed for the update/stream description field if/when using Social Platform API?


Thanks

    YML is not allowed in the Yahoo! updates stream.

    Are you using the YOSDK? If so, you can easily leverage the function calls that map to the social platform endpoints: http://developer.yahoo.com/social/php_guid...l_tutorial.html
