Yahoo 360! start page
I finally got a Yahoo! 360 invitation yesterday. So how has my life changed since then...well not so much. The first impressions that you get when you enter your Yahoo! 360 degree homepage is that something is missing...ads! There are absolutely no ads on this service, maybe because its in beta but for the moment is completely ad free.
The inteface is a bit dull which is not going to help things i suppose. So basically this service is supposed to bring you closer to your community of friends , relatives ,etc... so to this effect there are a number of tools which are available to help you socialise.
Yahoo 360! Search
Various searches are possible from the search menu (as you can see from the picture), however when i made a search for people in mauritius i found only 2 person , me and the other one being a friend i invited to test the service, i think for the socialising part we will have to wait for Yahoo 360! to fill up a bit.
yahoo 360! blog
The blog has all the features (or most of them) for making you a happy blogger. Above is my attempt to conquer the Yahoo! blogosphere.There is a neat blogroll feature and ability for you to moblog (blog from your mobile).Your entries will be published in RSS 2.0 feeds format.
Above is a screenshot of Yahoo!Photo , to share your photos with your friends , frankly speaking i do prefer hello over Yahoo!Photo.
To sum up Yahoo 360! does not live up to the expections what I would have had , msn spaces is definitively more interesting that Yahoo 360!. I didnt come over any new or innnovative so I'm not very impressed with it. But the service is still in beta , so maybe with more people joining and more features are added , it can be more interesting.
Win a Yahoo360! invite
If you are interested in getting a Yahoo360! invite please add a comment as to what you are going to do with it.I would like to give invites to everyone but given the rate at which people are asking me , i won't have many left (..80 invites left), so hurry.....!!
