Yahoo Group Categories
When a group is created on Yahoo the creator has to select a category in which to place the group. For freecycling groups this is a mess. There is no standard, no obvious category that makes sense. The kind of categories that are used include:
- cultures and community
- a geographic place such as a town or city
- and probably many others
So if you thought that browsing Yahoo categories was a way to find the best freecycling group for you in Yahoo then I am sorry you are mistaken. There is no standard. I had vaguely heard that at one time there was a “freecycling” category. Given the huge number of freecycling groups if anyone can confirm this then perhaps we could put pressure on Yahoo to reinstate this.
