I’ve always considered the Yahoo! home page a place with family-friendly content. But lately it’s becoming more family un-friendly. So much so that I’m reconsidering my usage of Yahoo! as a home page for my web browser. Especially because my school age kids use my laptop from time to time to browse the web. How is it that a Tweet from Twitter, along with a pretty nasty swear word gets listed as a news story on the site’s home page?
Take a look at the screen capture above. I’ve edited out the swear word because this word is banned in my house, and will not be tolerated. Perhaps this “news story” made it onto Yahoo!’s home page because it’s a trending topic, but you’d think that it would be edited out by the Yahoo editors. But apparently not.
Certainly it could be that Yahoo simply is posting this automatically not censoring their homepage in anyway.
