AdvantagesGreat program

DisadvantagesUnpleasant visitors

Advantagesmake new friends

Disadvantagessome large rooms can disappointing

If you have downloaded Yahoo Messenger you can enter via this way (which ..." Read review

Yahooligans everywhere

AdvantagesLots of info in one place, good email storage

DisadvantagesReceive lots of spam, website is aimed more at US users.

"...the UK signing up with Yahoo.com maybe wasn't the smartest idea I ever had, however it was 12 years ago when I signed up, I was young and naive.
