I received an email stating that Yahoo will not be supporting MESSENGER after July 16th. Now what to do? Running FOXFIRE, W10 and Yahoo. Ed

What do you use messenger for? You have friends you communicate with over it?

I use messenger to communicate with family and friends. Much quicker than email.

I thought Messenger had been part of Facebook?


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

The best one to pick is what your family and friends all use.

There are many choices but common one seems to be Facebook messanger.

Yahoo messanger was the grand daddy besides AOL instant messanger which is defunct too.

I personally like iMessages but requires you either have sms or apple device.

I was never a fan of Yahoo. I use Messages but I think Apple should open it up to anyone. FaceTime and Messages take care of my needs.

Of course, tomorrow it will be another messaging app that gets popular.

AOL & YAHOO messenger used to be the in thing.. GOOGLE & FACEBOOK MESSENGER is the new in. That's what I use besides texting.

Google has Hangouts and Facebook has Messenger and Microsoft has Skype; each of which can be used and synchronized between multiple devices. WhatsApp is another option that can be used on phones and the web.

Yahoo, what's that? grin Is it kind of like MySpace? Oh yeah, it's that thing that's still leaking eight years after I stopped using it.

I got the same email. I didn't even know Yahoo! had Messenger any more. I need to go check my Geocities page.
