Overview of Yahoo Groups

Yahoo Groups is a place where you can connect with your real life friends and communities, or branch out and discover all kinds of people who share your interests and values.

Whether you want to coordinate with the other parents on your kids' youth soccer team or join a book club on the other side of the world, Yahoo Groups is the easiest and most accessible way to bring groups of people together.

The best part -- it's free!

Group features

Every group has its own page with different sections where it's easy to join and spark up a conversation, share photos or files, and communicate with other group members.

Conversations

A home page for all of your Groups activity too!

Since most people on Yahoo Groups belong to more than one group, you'll get your own homepage where all of your group updates are consolidated for easy review.

Smart and intuitive group management

Every group is different, so why should they all be set up or managed in the same way? Each has a "Control Panel" where the owner and moderators can customize their group with different tools to reflect their group's personality.

While there are some basic terms and conditions that apply to all groups, group owners can appoint their own moderators to police their groups however they'd like.
