From Yahoo Moderator Central And Me: About Your Yahoo Profile.
- There is a new and improved version for yahoo profiles for everybody.
ALL old yahoo profiles needs to be rebooted to be seen, as of a couple
of days ago. It is easy and should only take a couple of minutes.
Links will no longer work. You will not be able to go back to your old
A couple of days Yahoo! profiles launched their new service, geared
towards a more open and social Yahoo!. This new version of Yahoo!
profiles has lots of great features that can help you stay connected
with your friends and family. When you create a new Yahoo! profile
page, you'll be able to add photos, information about yourself and
invite your friends to connect with you.
Your profile is all about you-your connections , your updates , your
privacy settings , your life. We want to help you better connect with
the people that matter to you in the easiest way possible, whether
it's sharing your recent updates or connecting with people from your
address book- we're here to help.
We realize that many Yahoo! Groups users and moderators previously
used the profiles system to verify user's age and contact details.
With the new profiles system, once a user updates their profile you'll
only see the limited contact card (displaying the user's name,
location, age, gender and status message) unless you are a connection
for that user, or the user has updated their permissions.
This means that until a user updates their profile information, you'll
see a blank contact card for that user. Each user will have to go in
and update their profile in the new system, and decide whether or not
they want their data to be viewable by all users. For more information
on how to do this, visit the profiles news blog , or the profiles help
