Playing with Y!IM

Adding to the friend list in Yahoo! Instant Messenger

I was playing with Yahoo! Messenger trying to figure out the privacy behavior in regards to the friend list. Yahoo! has a process when adding friends in Yahoo! Web Messenger (the applet version). Here's some steps I took in playing with that process.

Of course I didn't have to jump through all those hoops to get a friend added, but it just goes to show that you can if you want to. One way to avoid this hassle is don't use Web Messenger to add and delete users from the friend list.

Client version:
Yahoo Messenger (5, 6, 0, 1347)
MyYahoo Module (5, 6, 0, 501)
