Yahoo! organized and conducted India's second Moderators Union in Bangalore on Saturday, January 12, at Taj Residency. Yahoo! conducts this event regularly to listen to moderators' feedback and suggestions for continued improvement of the product and updating them about the latest from Yahoo! Groups. These moderators are the voice of their respective groups and reaching out to them implies keeping in touch with the millions of Yahoo! Groups users in India. This time, twenty two moderators attended the event not only from Bangalore but also from Delhi, Hyderabad, Madurai and Chennai.
The event opened with a welcome message from Mr. I M Swaminathan, Director - Communication & Community Products. Following that was a round of detailed introduction by each moderator. These moderators were from varied professional backgrounds, age groups and interests. They represented groups from technical, alumni, social cause, money control, corporate, hobbies and other categories. It was interesting to see a common connection of Yahoo! Groups amongst such a variety of people. In addition, there were fun games, quizzes, quick presentations on Yahoo! Groups, One Search and Maps to take first hand feedback. Subsequently, the stage was made open for moderators to discuss about products presented in the event with a panel of Yahoo! staff and the event was concluded with lunch.
Moderators testified Yahoo! Groups as being a pivotal tool in fulfilling the objective behind creating their own communities. Sunil Sood, moderator of IAEMP was able to publish a book called "How India can achieve Energy Independence by 2022"; Mr Sukhdeep Singh, moderator of Sweetcrazyboy group http://in.groups.yahoo.com/group/sweetcrazyboy was able to create a common voice of Asia with 70000+ members in his group; Chandrasekaran was able to unite 300 people for the novel cause of Temple Cleaning with the help of Yahoo! Groups. These are just a few examples that were presented in the event explaining how Yahoo! Groups have made difference in their lives.
