Yahoo puts price on personals
The switch comes as Yahoo is seeking to bolster its revenues in the midst of an online advertising contraction. The company has added charges to numerous services that were previously free, including its auction listings, which saw an immediate drop-off in popularity. Most recently, Yahoo sent notices to heavy users of its GeoCities Web-hosting service, telling them to upgrade to a recently launched paid version or face disruptions.
