Yahoo.com is a VERY popular search engine and multiple outlets on one platform. It provides everything from mail, news, sports, and much more. Yahoo is a great PLN tool because it already combines so many useful features needed in a PLN all in one organized place. Yahoo also provides a slideshow on their homepage of relevant current events that change depending on your specified location in the world. Yahoo is also great because it’s international. Besides holding a US email, I also hold a french account ending with .fr. This is important because it creates a broad spectrum to obtain information and link back to.
I really looked for differences this week in how websites we may already know of are still relevant and useful. These well known websites are known for a reason, and it’s important to recognize their importance in a ever evolving internet popularity. As usual I also looked at user friendly ness, and reliability.
Most people already have an account with Yahoo, but I recommend it for its other qualities like current events. Thier posts may not be the most well written, but they get general information out there.
