Fighting for freerecyling

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:

  • recycling
  • cultures and community
  • environment
  • 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.
