Enjoying the Yahoo Purple Hunt!

Last April, I got contacted by Jonas who formerly worked for Yehey and is now with Yahoo! in relation to the upcoming Yahoo! Purple Hunt. He was tapping me as a power user of Yahoo Groups. I agreed for the following reasons:

  1. Doing this for the love of Yahoo!
    DigitalFilipino would not have grown and stayed up to this day without its discussion group turned mailing list community hosted in Yahoo Groups.
  2. Now or never
    I want to be part of this unique experience because there may not be a 2nd chance to do so.
  3. Learn from it
    Anyone who is into social network marketing can learn a lot from this experience as the whole hunt tapped into the various communities, platforms, and relationship of users.
  4. Meet new people
    Being in touch with fellow users allowed me to make new friends. For me, that is the greatest value of it all.

This whole Yahoo! Purple Hunt will be over by July 25. I'm very thankful to be part of this amazing experience. To all Purple Hunters, good luck!
