Some of you may have received or heard about an important notice sent to users regarding their Yahoo! Profile photo. This announcement seems to be generating some confusion that I hope to clear up.
The notice, a copy of which I have included below, was only sent to users who have a profile marked as adult at http://profiles.yahoo.com/YID.
Two things to make clear:
- Just the photos on adult profiles will be deleted on April 9th, not the profile itself or a person’s Yahoo! ID
- Adult groups themselves, including their photos, will NOT be affected in any way.
Notice that was sent out
Email title: An important notice about your Yahoo! Profiles photo
We’re making some changes that will affect one of your Yahoo! profiles. After April 9, 2008, mature content will not be permitted within Yahoo! Profiles.
In accordance with this new policy, users will no longer be able to designate an “adult profile,” and mature content will be removed.
The profile (http://profiles.yahoo.com/YID) for the Yahoo! ID YID is marked “adult.” The picture associated with this profile will be removed and deleted on April 9, 2008.
For additional information or to learn how to get a copy of your photo before April 9, 2008, please visit our help pages.
