									Yahoo Groups
   Why do you need a Yahoo
      Profile (Account)?
• 1) You will be able to view the archive of
  messages (job leads, job fairs, articles).
• 2) You will be able to specify an alternate
  Email Address that you monitor regularly.
• 3) You will be able to control Message
  Delivery (Individual - No Email)
• 4) You will be able to specify Message
At first some of the information seemed invasive,
but my name, gender, birthdate and postal code
information is not displayed any where that I have
The process of creating a profile does create an
email account; BUT, like me, you do not have to use
it, ever.

  New User? [Sign Up]
  (If you do not already
  have a Yahoo Profile.)
Note:# When first creating your Yahoo account 'Profile', you can experiment
with minimizing the information you give.
Years ago I did specify Birthdate, Gender, Industry, Title, Specialization, Time
For my email address, I do have a yahoo address that I have never used and
my primary email address.
For contact information: My first and last name is required (* marks required
fields) I also gave a name prefix.
For Home Information: City, State, Zip(* required) and Country.
For Work/School Information: Country.
At the bottom of the form, I see the note:
  Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required for most Yahoo! services.
I did not complete some of those because I am not buying any Yahoo services.
1) Signing up seems to require:
  a) a First Name and a Last Name
  b) Gender
  c) a Birthdate: Month, Day, Year
  d) a Postal Code
 2) Select a unique Yahoo_ID
(Alternatives will be suggested if not unique.)
3) Specify a password.
4) You may also specify an
       alternative email address.
       (I have never used theirs)
  (provide one that you will monitor regularly)
5) You will also be asked to select 2
        Security Questions and give
        their answers.
6) The code assures them that you
        are a person and not an
        electronic robot.
7) Agree to their terms.
