Yahoo

Everyone is complaining about yahoo mail and the messenger. I hate them too and will include Yahoo homepage as well. If I click on a link in email then I can't go back to email without clicking on my home icon, then mail again. Whatever happened to the "back" button?...

YAHOO removed the comments section right before the election debates. Typical tech company move silence people. The only view now is the YAHOO view, of liberal progressive idiots.

The new yahoo messenger sucks

I loved the old yahoo messenger, and when something works great, why change it? this new one really sucks big time. I am done with yahoo And I am going to quit using yahoo all together, And from what all my friends have told me that they are going to get rid of yahoo including e-mail as am I. I understood that yahoo was sold. If it was, good job dumb ***. I hate yahoo now, thanks a lot. why in the world would you change something that works smooth and easy, and everyone liked? and if yahoo was not sold than someone at yahoo must of wanted to retire early. a lot of my friends I have known for many years have quit using yahoo already and now I have to call them by land line to talk to them. I am on a computer most all day for work and home and it was nice to use yahoo messenger to keep up with everyone, well you just shot that in the ***. going to find another messenger to use. the saying goes, if its not broken don't try to fix it.

Yahoo Messenger

For sevral years now Yahoo Messenger has been an important method to stay in contact with nearly 1,000 clients. This all came to a screeching halt on September 1st when the 'new' messenger became active. Since then I have been in contact with exactly 3 clients in 12 days. Usually it is 50-100 contacts per DAY. Now we are evaluating alternatives like Skype or Google's messenger options. Great job Yahoo. First messing up Yahoo Groups to the point of making them useless and now Messenger. Feeling sorry for Verizon and their stockholders.

Yahoo’s worst enemies hide amongst its management lines…

This is in loyal defense of Yahoo Messenger and against the conspiring decisions of those inside Yahoo, Inc whose current business strategy are effectively driving it into the obsolescing extinction. The following warning pops up at the startup of Yahoo Messenger all over the world… This is not an invitation to a better experience, but an arbitrary imposition derived from the negligent decision of a disrespectful company’s management. “YahooMessenger: Final reminder! Your version of Yahoo Messenger will stop working as of August 31, 2016. Get the newest version for Windows, Mac or mobile at https://messenger.yahoo.com/download to continue using Yahoo Messenger. For more information, go to https://yho.com/YMhelp” The purpose of a business activity is validated and thereof justified by its causes and by the benefits delivered; i. e. a mutual reciprocity between the company’s stakeholders and its customers. Those in charge of the management of a business must understand the implied responsibilities, liabilities and repercussions derived from poor management and from failed decisions. . A lack of vision, the poor management of opportunities and both the uncommitted provider/customer relation along to a negligent business conduction have deteriorated the potential of what once was the most relevant event in the world wide web; YAHOO!. Those who have shown faith on yahoo in their investor portfolios have, for many months, experienced the progressive decay of the value of their assets, which show evidence that today Yahoo is in the hands of its worst enemies. Yahoo is the compendium of a diversity of communities unified by a culture based on the creation and distribution of capabilities, resources, benefits, values and the tangible access to a better life standard for everybody. The managers of Yahoo must understand that the trust and the preference granted by their customers was grounded and built on the expectancy of developing a productive, dependable, functional and long enduring interrelation. With this experience in mind and due to the important role that Yahoo Messenger has played for many years in the social and business life of thousands of millions all over the planet; we feel the obligation to take part in the defense of what has been accomplished until now with Yahoo Messenger because yahoo is the result of a combined effort between the provider and the users. As in-congruent as it gets, today’s management decisions at Yahoo, Inc have driven this company into its darkest era. We totally dis-accord with the approach that has caused these events, which compel us to question the basis of justification of Yahoo’s management decisions. Yahoo, Inc must not overlook the fact that the trust and the preference that their customers have granted to their work until now, constitute the purpose and the justification of their existence, the reason of their efforts and the real value of their business. Yahoo must also keep in mind at all moments the fact that the potential and the success of their business are direct result of the social participation. Now at only few days from its introduction, the New Version of Yahoo Messenger has already had its chance to prove being a complete failure. We find difficult to accept Yahoo management’s decision on discontinuing the previous and the current versions of Yahoo Messenger, because they are replacing it with an inferior product as is the case of the “New Yahoo Messenger” (Ver. 0.8X). We have bench-marked this new version, we’ve compared it with the three previous versions and we’ve found that by itself is a crippled application and therefore a very disappointing experience; the general opinion of our customers’ community agree to state that “The new Yahoo Messenger is definitely unacceptable as the replacement of an application that for many years, has held the leadership for its great functionality and quality” We are concerned about the future that Yahoo. Inc may have ahead, its spirit is fading out rapidly, and this is no longer the Yahoo that brought the social life to the internet, now we are evoking the experiences that we had in the past with all the products from Yahoo. Yahoo urgently needs a loyal management team to take over its direction; because a business that loses its vision and goals loses its reason to exist; i.e. the thousands of millions of worldwide users of Yahoo and the business that they offer. “The King has died... long live the King” The empire has now lost it purpose and its now running into obsolescence!

Yahoo Messenger Desktop Application Review

The new yahoo IM is a step back 15 years. It is awful. Why oh why did you make me upgrade. I know of many who are dumping the new version and moving away from YIM. And I am just another. Goodbye and thanks for the good years.

Yahoo - Messenger Desktop Application Review from Utica, New York

I've had yahoo messenger for many years and the latest desktop version is the perfect indicator of just how out of touch and irrelevant yahoo has become. I no longer have any mobile device or desktop PC using yahoo messenger. Next I need to get rid of my email account. Bye yahoo.

This is just horrible! My daughter who lives 9 hours away would communicate with me on the old yahoo but the new upgraded nightmare is impossible to use.

There was NOTHING wrong with the old version!! Does yahoo even see this? So many are complaining I would think they would let us use the old ome.

What were they thinking???!!!

Unfunctional

why would one want a messenger that takes up their whole screen and does not even function. its gone from functional programming to totally useless. try to find a friend list on it... Cant! try to find options or adjustment settings they don't even exist. I seriously want to keep the old yahoo it was half decent programming that didn't need to be messed with. However even it started to go down hill when users could not connect or make their own chat rooms but still was a good way to talk at friends and better than java based Facebook for communication in chat form with its individualized boxes that don't take up your whole screen.

Want a functional IM for my Desktop

I really hate this Yahoo Instant Messenger. I can't kill old contacts that always appear on the new Yahoo Instant Messenger. I don't have a smart phone & I don't want my desktop to look like one. Where can I go that has an old style Yahoo Instant Messenger? I really hate Yahoo & current management. They use to allow detail profiles (very important), member searches, chat rooms & functional Instant Messenger. I'm no longer allow to have video chats or send files through Yahoo Instant Messenger. It's all gone because some dumb Bimbo president hated her customers & disrespected their desires.

New YM upgrade is totally disasturous!

Does Yahoo plan to get rid of their users? Or Yahoo want to *** us - the users - off for fun? This new YM upgrade is totally a fiasco. Hard to use, interface is sloppy, couldn't work well with others (some could received while many couldn't receive new message from me), not convenient (need to use web to chat) and it's *** dull the design. May I know why or how management agreed on such upgrade at the first place? And I wonder if they really do use or try using them before giving the green light for the upgrade. If they do and still they like it, definitely Yahoo's management taste of design and understanding on what the current market need - deteriorating and obsolete. Please give us back the old YM. It's more fun and friendlier to use compared to this yucky new YM.

Yahoo articles (double click)

Yahoo continues to progressively suck. The new fad for them is that when you click a news article to read I open it in a new tab. Then the article gives you a small description and a box to click for "read more". Are they joking? Open three tabs to read article. Enough! Now I click on a article and what do I get? "page cannot be found". I would love for someone to tell me how I can dump yahoo. I have all of my contacts and emails since 2005. I cannot stand Yahoo any more.

New Yahoo Messenger sucks. Very limited and user loses control

The new Yahoo Messenger is awful and very limiting. You can't change preferences. I do not want to show the images of the users and it takes up space. I have always used the compressed/compact version. Now this new version is bulky and lacks control. Even the new...

Awful service/experience

Ever since the update came through messenger has had nothing but problems. Now I am completely locked out and when attempting to follow the unlock steps the website lists it as no longer valid. I have attempted to reset multiple times only to find my account locked. When I attempt to contact support, none shows to be available. When the account was working, the new messaging function would only partially allow conversations. This is terrible. Please bring back what was replaced. Yahoo has fallen behind services like facebook chat and others, yahoo use to set the standard, no longer. This is very dissapointing. Help please

Yahoo Messenger Desktop Application Review from Clifton, New Jersey

Yahoo is the worst. And the fact he set up a way that there's no one to talk to and no way to get a hold in one actually sucks. And you have a flight to go through you have a live chat with a live operator. What Yahoo does nothing like that just suggestions and help board which leaves you right back to your same problem. I can't sign in my account now for the past four months. I know the password is correct and even when I create a new account I still can't sign in because it doesn't recognize it.

My.Yahoo. Home page is terrible now.

My.Yahoo home page has the same news headlines showing for over two weeks now. Also, some show a date line of 1969. Now, video advertisement has been placed on my 'home' page that blasts me with audio that I never asked for, or WANTED! I am only echoing other users who complained earlier. And also Yahoo news stories seem written by junior high schoolers. Nobody seems to edit the news content, or reads the mis-leading headlines. I have no personal issues with the yahoo email although I read that others are weary of it. What is with those Yahoos anyway?
