Personalized Start Pages
These are free sites that can be customized to suit your tastes. Things such as national and regional news, sports, financial information, weather, search engines, television listings, individual stock portfolio trackers, and many other useful features can be set up by individuals. They can be visited when you desire or can even be set up as your homepage. Most are protected by a password, so that others cannot see your personal information. The companies that sponsor these sites earn their money from advertisements and special offers that they place on these sites. They are useful, but a person is best advised not to give permission for their address or E-mail to be distributed. Doing so, can result in E-mail boxes being stuffed with useless and misleading advertisements (Spam)
