I really don't get why companies like Yahoo and others pay miliions (or billions!) of dollars for these pieces of software. It's probably because I don't use social media at all, but still I don't get it. I would understand paying that much money for some revolutionnary AI technology or whatever represents a real breakthrough, but to share pictures or videos and likes and crap like that while being bombarded with useless advertising? Really?
Yahoo disgusts me. They deleted all my emails a few years ago based on the fact that I "hadn't logged in for 3 consecutive months". Now they've completely deleted all my Yahoo accounts and I'm frantically trying to reactivate them because they were linked to other web services.
Never again will I use or trust Yahoo. If I have an email account, I don't care if I use it every day or abandon it for 10 years. When I come back after 10 years, I expect it to still be there. I expect my emails to still be there. This is why I use gmail now.
