Yahoo Group Users – Attention, I received this information on a
discussion list for a master mind group I’m a member of. If you, like
millions of others, use Yahoo Groups to connect with clients, classes
or other discussion groups, you may want to read this:
Yahoo is now using something called “Web Beacons” to track Yahoo
Group users around the net and see what you’re doing and where you are
going (similar to cookies.) Yahoo is recording every website and every
group you visit. Take a look at their updated privacy
2. About half-way down the page, in the section on Cookies, you will
see a link that says Web Beacons. Click on the phrase “Web Beacons”.
3. That will bring you to a paragraph entitled “Outside the Yahoo
Network”. In this section you’ll see a little “click here to opt out”
link which will let you “opt-out” of their new method of snooping.
4. Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.[Notice the
“Success” message on the top of the next page. Be careful because on
that page there is also a “Cancel Opt-out” button which, if clicked,
will *undo* the opt-out. It appears after you have hit the opt-out
button so is very confusing.
