  • Yahoo!, without warning to group owners or moderators, changed Yahoo! groups to a Facebook-type format that does not work. (What were they thinking? If people wanted a Facebook-type format, they would have simply created a Facebook page! Duh!) I am the owner of two special interest Yahoo! groups that WERE very active, but the only posts we've had since the change are complaints about the new format (which is NOT user-friendly) and where we're going to find a different host for our group. This "change" is so fouled up that we are no longer able to post photos or other images, cannot preview posts, are not allowed to have a homepage photo of our choice (Yahoo! chose a photo of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow for our homepage!) and the site has messages from more than two years ago listed as NEW! Numerous members have unsubscribed and others are threatening to unsubscribe. We are now actively searching for a new host site, however, this will take time and by then, we will likely have lost a significant portion of our membership.

    Additionally, I am a member of several other Yahoo! groups and some of them simply aren't there anymore, one of which was my college alumni association. I received emails from these groups indicating they are searching for a new host site and will contact me as soon as the groups are reestablished.

    If Marissa Mayer knew, or cared, about Yahoo!, she would have conducted a little research before launching a change that does not work and people do not want. Instead of posing for "Vogue," she should be paying attention to the company she is paid to run! [ less... ]

    The "neo" YahooGroups is not fully functional and should not have been rolled out without basic function tests. While Yahoo is struggling to fix them, they should have done that in house, without needing hundreds/thousands of users to point out the many flaws to them. Moreover, there should have been some sort of warning given to the list owners so it could have been publicized.

    You can use your own photo on the home page. I'm not a fan of the new page, but I'm not sure it's worth all of the uproar

    (Trying again, my post's HTML was messed up)<br>Brenda commented 338 milliseconds ago <br> Not worth all of the uproar? Let me give you some examples:Medical patients who use Medical Groups to get treatment arranged, and have medicine sent to them have been crippled. Drs can't communicate with their patients and vice versa. This is putting the patients in danger.<br><br>The Freecycle groups are having a serious security issue. Everything they post to their groups is now being seen by the public. Names, addresses, phone numbers, personal info is all being thrown out there for anyone to get ahold of, putting those users in danger as well of being targeted by thieves, etc.<br><br><br>Educational Groups that offer online courses are unable to communicate with their students. They can't access the files and get assignments to and from the students, and some are losing money as students give up.<br><br><br>Disabled and elderly people can not function in NEO, their special accomodation software will not work, and they can't do anything. They are contacting people to find out what the ADA law says about this.And that represents the tip of the iceberg
