Yahoo.com, has to be, without a doubt, tHE biggest website on the whole of the world wide web. It is full of interesting things to do, and has attracted the largest online community thanks to it's great attributes........and the site is really easy to navigate!!
Although i haven't used many of the options, the ones that i have, have impressed me greatly.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO??
Well.......what it there to do on Yahoo?? well the main purpose of the website, is a Search Engine.....but we'll come onto that later on........there are also MANY other things to do on the site..........they include:
and SO much more!! I am not kidding!! there has to be over a hundred different sub categorys on this website!!........but what about the most important?........well too me they are:
The Yahoo search engine has to be the LARGEST on the world wide web [kinda the same as the site itsel eh?], and if you are looking for something, then this engine is your best bet!! There has to be a million websites in the directory, so there is a good chance that if you are looking for a particular website, then you are sure to find it, AND a few similar sites as well!!............but one of the downsides [as weith ANY search engine] is that you don't ALWAYS get what you are looking for. In Yahoo in particular, i have searched for something, and not found one website that actually has anything to do with waht i searched for [although the chances of this happening are very slight].......but it does happen, so you have to be very particular for what you type into the search engine!!
Mail is prob
ably the most important aspect of Yahoo for me, because it allows me a free e-mai laccount, with 6mb of mail space!! quite a lot for free!! But no matter how great it is, there will always be drawbacks!! for instance, i get up to 80 Bulk Mails a day, all of which are spam, [and a few of which were pornographic........which ca't be good if there are under 18's using the mail!!]........but i am sure this does not happen to everyone..........but no matter how much i try and block it, i keep getting it......everything from 'You have won a Million Dollars' to 'Get your Gold Card NOW!!' and i even got one telling me about my Military Pension [i didn't even know about it!!! :P].......but apart from that, the mail is very good, and the mail part of the site is very easy to navigate, and work your way through............although signing out can be a bit of a bother..........first you are signed out, then you have to fully sign out, then click on a link to take you back to the login page!! ARGH! Brain overload!!
The Yahoo Clubs, once again are a great feature of Yahoo, and a very good way of meeting people who are interested in the same things as you!! all you have to do is goto the main Clubs page, and search for what kind of club you want [ie. Blink-182, or Manga Art], and you get a whole list of clubs that involve whatever you searched for!! How great is that?!?! and you can even make your own club........and it's not even hard to set up........once again, it's a great way to meet new friends!!
The auctions on Yahoo.com, vary from week to week [what i mean is, how many results you find for your search for an auction]......for instance, one week you'll find 100+ auctions for Blink-182, and the next there'll be under 30..........but y'know, it all depends on whether the auctions are successful!! Of course, there will never be as much on here as there is on Ebay.com, but there is still
quite a lot of choice!! Well worth a check out if you are looking for something rare..........but beware, this is the American version, and some of the auctioneers won't ship to the UK.......
Although not an actual part of Yahoo.com, this is a great little download for talking to your new found friends!! much like AIM, and MSN, YM is a good easy way to communciate with friends, and an easy way to have a good conversation.......although not many people have this and use it like they used to, this is still a great tool, if you are willing to indulge in the itme to download it!!
ALthough i haven't said to much, i hope that i have written a good informative opinion on Yahoo.com............although maybe some might see it is a bit boring.........well, i enjoyed writing it!!
