Flickr is one of my favorite web applications, and I also use Yahoo! Answers.

Which Yahoo! apps have sucked you in?

The only one I use regularly now is Flickr. I used to use Yahoo! Messenger all the time but now I tend to use Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk instead.

None for me. I used to use Yahoo TV, but after they updated it I switched to titantv.com

I don't really take pictures, so I have no use for Flickr

I used Answers extensively for a couple of months... but then gave up helping people, when the questions became lamer and lamer.

So now, none.

Yahoo! mail beta from time to time..

though i did try Yahoo! Widgets for a while.. 'till i grew sick of it and deleted it

to tell you the truth, i dont really like Yahoo!'s services.. Google's and MS's are better..

The only Yahoo! service I am using now is Flickr – to "favorite" photos that are uploaded to Flickr.

I use Flickr a lot, especially their Creative Commons search. I sometimes come across Yahoo News.
I recently tried Yahoo Mail, but it's not as usable as Gmail.
Other than that, I'm just using Yahoo for testing purposes, unless I forgot a service of theirs...

Not many any longer. Photos, for sure.

Used to use TV Listings a lot- but look at the feedback on the updated version! It's, uh, a bit negative.

Last time I saw a product this badly reviewed was the iTunes 7.0 disaster. Don't people QA these things?

I read Yahoo News everyday and use Flickr from time to time.

I used to like Yahoo Answers, but I no longer use it. Most people give insincere answers and just seem to want to collect points.

Yahoo never really appealed to me as much as MSN/Microsoft did 'till I found Google.

Hi,

I like to use Yahoo! Answers to ask questions that require a range of answers. For example, I asked about the essential things to bring if a friend is going to visit Europe for her first time. I get a range of great recommendations from the answerers.

I also like to use Flickr to post and share my photos with others. Although I simultaneously post them on Picasaweb, I miss the feedback from other members that I would find at Flickr.
