Circle is open now

29 Mar 2005

Yahoo! 360° is now open for a public beta.

360 pixels

This photo is by Ernie, one of the Yahoos who has worked on 360° ; that 360° logo was created out of pixel blocks (whatever that means).

Leave a comment (with a valid email address) if you need an invite.

P.S. Remember, 360° is not blogs, blogs is one aspect of 360°. Read this review to understand what it is really about.

P.P.S. The only thing I really don't like is the name 360°, I wish they had stuck with Mingle.

simy_hanx says:

May I have one?Thanks!

Vigvg says:

Hmmm... after all that... if you still have invites left over and are in the mood to accomodate invite-mongers like myself, then do let me in !

Pramod Biligiri says:

Looks nice over all. I hope it has something that makes me check it every day..else it'll stagnate. Even I liked the name "mingle" much more.

Yathi Raj says:

Hi,
I would be glad if you invite me to Y! 360.

Regards
Yathi

Philip: Mingle means friends getting together too, but I personally feel any word would have been better than a number.

Are you talking about my swaroopch.info site? I have never faced any problem with the search box. It sits in a tiny place in the sidebar, I don't see how it could grab 99% of the screen estate. You might have an incomplete page loaded, so try refreshing your browser.

Julian says:

yes please!

Noorul Islam says:

Thousands of thanks for the invite.

mcw says:

Thank you!

Ankit Malik says:

how did u manage that degree sign?

Ankit Malik says:

This is RIDICULOUS > Only for above 18... I mean how do they decide that visiting chatrooms is ok for under-18s but not blogging????

vivek says:

Please invite me too if possible, many thanks

Philip says:

Mingle suggests dating.

Your site's search box obnoxiously grabs focus when the page loads. I don't think 99% of the visitors to your site have search as the first thing on their agenda. Scrolling down is what they're most likely to do.

Hi!I would be glad if you invite me to Y! 360. Thanks
Best wishes

Noorul Islam says:

I need one

Swaroop C H says:

Ankit: Sure, I will forward it.

Ankit Malik says:

hi... check scribbler.tk for my reply to their underage policy... more of a rant rather than a formal request to allow kids/underage to use yahoo 360... but just one voice ..hope their will be more!

btw searched google and found no one complaining about this :( maybe all are hiding their DoBs to use this ;-) but no i am not gonna do that :(

Ankit Malik says:

me too... just made a new id for it... ankit_scribbler AT yahoo dot COM... please anyone please...

Swaroop C H says:

All of you must have got invites from now... I've become a 360 invite factory :lol:

Shankar says:

Can you plz invite me.

Praveen A says:

Hey Swaroop,
I need a slice of 360 too.

Swaroop C H says:

Ankit: Chatting and blogging are really two different things, but then I am not sure why they chose 18 as the cut-off. You are underage?? :P

`°` is the XHTML entity used for degree sign.

Azmi Ahmad says:

Invite me ... Please !!

Morrow says:

please send me one invitation.Thank you.

Ankit Malik says:

"Ankit: Chatting and blogging are really two different things, but then I am not sure why they chose 18 as the cut-off. You are underage?? :P

Of course.. Am I not the 'new kid on the block'! Then I got to be underage... But this is something really sick... I mean no blogging till you are 18 or Papa Yahoo will slap you.... !:(( :( Wait... I am already drafting a message for Y! Bosses/concerned to change that roadblock ... will you forward it to the concerned? is that possible?
