Dear Yahoo! - Thanks for making my choice to leave easier
I've already gone to http://bookmarks.yahoo.com/
and exported my bookmarks.
This past 4 days I've been setting up Netvibes as my new RSS reader. Netvibes is so much better. I stuck around here b/c I liked what I had had and had had no reason to change. Once you guys jumped the shark you mad it easier to change to a better RSS reader.
Only thing keeping me around Yahoo! at all is my old email acct., but I suppose eventually you will convince me to go find another email provider as well.
It's easier to manage bookmarks - including exporting them to use elsewhere, if you go to:
I've now discovered that if I try to subscribe to an RSS feed through my MyYahoo! it wants to put it on the main tab and I have no apparent way of changing which tab it puts it on. I was only subscribing through MyYahoo until I can get a new homepage setup.
I'm already in the middle of removing my bookmarks, and storing them in a folder on the cloud. I will be doing the same with my rss feeds. HAppy Trails Yahoo. You really jumped the shark on this one.
11,000+ votes. 1,100 + comments for just this one posted idea (concern), and you still have not addressed much in the way of the issues brought to your attn.
Really, really great customer service.
So you did a great job at screwing with the bookmarks. It used to be you could right-click on th ebookmarks and open them in a new tab/window. Now it seems I have to click ont he bookmark, and open the link inte same tab, then go back to the Yahoo! window and then open another bookmark. How useful is that? Who comes up with these idiotic ideas?
YEP GREAT JOB MS EX-GOOGLE CEO PERSON!!
Can't delete bookmark folders, can't rename them. Really great job!
Andrewjmarino - you posted a link:
which listed pageflakes. I used to have a pageflakes acct. I'm going to go see if I can reactivate it.
Since you can barely manage the bookmarks, I'm simply saving them all to a folder in the cloud, and will manage them that way. Will have access to them no matter what computer I get on, which Is why I used Bookmarks, verses "favorites" on a browser.
<SIGH>? you guys must really want to cause the stock prices to plummet.
The fact that this "improvement" has mad it to the news at:
should tell you all something. Fire your ex-Google CEO and get to fixing things and put them back the way they were. You want to make a change. Ask your users what they want.
"Prior to Yahoo Marissa Mayer was Vice President of Local, Maps, and Location Services at Google where she oversaw product management, engineering, design and strategy for the company’s suite of local and geographical products, including Google Maps, Google Earth, Zagat, Street View, and local search, for desktop and mobile.
During her 13 years at Google,...."
I get it, she's trying to kill Yahoo! and drive everyone away, and hoping they'll go to Google, and then they will hire her back with a big bonus.
Considering this one feedback has over 8,000 votes for it, and there are very many others that are similar complaints. I don't think your comment on the feedback page is entirely accurate. If you you were listening and responding you'd put things back the way they were, then give people the option of seeing how the changes will look, then give them the option to go back if they change their mind.
