Your Interests

The Internet is a great way for people with special interests to gather and exchange ideas. Whether you’re into model trains, European soccer, or soap operas, you can find a legion of similar fans online.

Yahoo! makes it easy for you to hang out with people who share your special interests via Yahoo! Message Boards and Yahoo! Groups. When you gather via Yahoo!, it doesn’t matter where you live—you can meet with friends around the globe in the Yahoo! community.

Yahoo! Messenger

Yahoo! Messenger is both software and a service designed to let you communicate instantly—and privately—with other Yahoo! members. When the Yahoo! Messenger software is running, you can send instant messages to any other Yahoo! user currently online, as well as receive up-to-the-minute stock prices,news headlines, sports scores, weather forecasts, and notification of any waiting Yahoo! Mail

You might not know it, but Yahoo! Messenger is one of the big players in instant messaging—right up there with AOL Instant Messenger, Windows Messenger (a.k.a. MSN Messenger), and ICQ. Like the other players, Yahoo! Messenger is a free service; all you have to do is download and install the Yahoo! Messengersoftware—which you do from the main Yahoo! Messenger page (

After Yahoo! Messenger is running, you see the Yahoo! Messenger window
shown in Figure . When you click the Friends tab, all the members of your Friends List are displayed in the main Messenger window; friends online are displayed in bold.

To send an instant message, double-click any name in your Friends List. Whenthe Send Instant Message window appears, enter your message and click the Send button, or press the Enter key. (You can spice up your text with bold, italic, underline, or color, if you want.)

Let’s start with group communications, which you do with Yahoo! Chat ( Once you load the Yahoo! Chat software, you enter a topic-specific chat room where you join other users in a group conversation. You send messages
to the room using your keyboard and read everyone else’s messages on
your computer screen. You can even send private messages to other users in a chat room, so you can keep your personal conversations out of the public eye.

The Yahoo! Chat page is your home page for all of Yahoo!’s chat activities. From here you can access featured chat rooms and chat events, or browse through the available chat rooms, organized by category.

When you enter a chat room, you see the screen shown in Figure . All messages are displayed in the Chat pane; everyone chatting in the room is listed in the Chatters pane. You enter your messages in the Send box and then click the Send button (or press Enter) to send the message to the room. After you send a message, it appears in the Chat pane, listed in-line with all the other messages.Figure Everybody else in your chat room is listed in the Chatters list. If you want to
change chat rooms, click the Change Room button. When you click this button, Yahoo! displays the chat room list; click a room name to change to that room.

Listen to Your E-Mail by Phone

Here’s something different. When you can’t get to your computer, you can use Yahoo! by Phone to listen to your e-mail messages over any telephone. You access your account by voice recognition; just dial 1-800-MY-YAHOO to retrieve all waiting messages.Yahoo! by Phone costs $4.95 per month. You can get more information and sign

Get Free E-Mail

Chances are you already have one or more e-mail accounts through your Internet service provider or place of employment. Why in the world would you want yet another e-mail account?

Well, it’s always good to have another e-mail account—especially if it’s free. You can always use a new account to hide from spammers, or to use for specific purposes. In addition, having a Web-based e-mail account is great when you’re traveling; you can access your e-mail from any Web browser on any computer anywhere there’s an Internet connection.

If you want universal e-mail accessible from any Web browser on any PC—and you want it free of charge—then you want Yahoo! Mail. Yahoo! Mail is a Webbased e-mail service, totally free of charge, that you can use to replace or supplement your existing e-mail account(s).

If you’ve already signed up for a Y Yahoo! service, you already have a Yahoo! Mai ID and password. Your Yahoo! ID becomes your Yahoo! Mail address; just add a to your ID, and you’re ready to go. (And if you haven’t yet signed up for Yahoo! Mai!, do so now—it doesn’t cost anything.) Yahoo! Mai
