Yahoo Pulse- watch out if you have yahoo accounts

Postby Bmat » Sat Sep 04, 2010 4:58 pm

I learned that Yahoo now has yahoo pulse, which is supposed to be something like facebook. What they have done is to put up your profile and other information for all to see. Go to http://pulse.yahoo.com/, click settings, and change everything to private and no one and delete whatever personal information you can on that page and look around at the other pages, unless you want others to see your information. I changed information on about 3-4 pages.

Address corrected. Thank you, GK!

I tried Yahoopulse.com, could not go there, it is actually:


I do not have much with yahoo, it is only because my provide is connected with them. They should have informed people about this, how are we meant to know?

Thanks for the info.

Thank you, BMat. I went over and hid everything I could. That kind of stuff makes me furious. Not a word to anybody, broadcasting my information all over everywhere. I can't do anything about the info that's already gone. Jeez, that pisses me off. :evil:
