We know about Bing providing the results to Yahoo for searches now, and the advertising platforms being consolidated to Microsoft adcenter in progress now.

But I haven't heard anything about Yahoo Local and Bing Maps. Is there a plan to combine those? Or will they stay separate?

Bing Maps continues to be very slow sending verification letters for their listings, and some updates I've added to Yahoo Local have been stalled now too.

I believe the two will eventually merge but I cannot give you a date on when it will happen. Since Microsoft purchased nearly all of Yahoo's content (Maps included) I would assume that this will be part of the consolidation efforts. They are already merging many of the search results, so I believe that the algorithms are being combined/tweaked taking the best from both approach.

They are also trying some novel concepts now with their partnership with Facebook to try and develop results based upon "user opinion". This is probably an effort to combat Google who recently changed its' entire SERP display to make "local results" king.
