Create a Yahoo Group to support a community of common interest

This assignment gives you practice creating a Yahoo Group and reinforces the idea of an online community.

A Yahoo Group is a tool to support a community of common interest. The most important step in this assignment is thinking about the community you wish to support. Is it a few friends with a common interest, people taking a class, friends from the gym, you and your brothers and sisters, etc.? (The most successful groups will receive extra credit).

Think carefully about the group you plan to support, then write a short statement of who they are and what their common interest is. Print that out to turn in.

Next create a Yahoo Group for your community by following the three-step process at: http://groups.yahoo.com/start.

When you have completed the setup, you will receive a confirmation email. Print that out to turn in.
