Hello, Welcome to my blog

Yahoo! shutting down Delicious MyBloglog Buzz


Surprising news for everyone is that Yahoo is shutting Delicious, MyBlogLog, AltaVista and Larry King. In addition to these services, Yahoo is also terminating the Yahoo Buzz, Yahoo Bookmarks, and Yahoo Picks.

Yahoo! announced in a press conference:

"Part of our organizational streamlining involves cutting our investment in under performing or off-strategy products to put better focus on our core strengths and fund new innovation in the next year and beyond,” the company said. “We continuously evaluate and prioritize our portfolio of products and services, and do plan to shut down some products in the coming months such as Yahoo! Buzz, our Traffic APIs, and others. We will communicate specific plans when appropriate."

This can be a big change for all the bloggers out there who are dependent on Delicious, Yahoo's Buzz to bookmark and share their articles. MyBlogLog is another useful product to bloggers who prefer to add the MyBlogLog widgets on your blog sidebar. Now these widgets and plug-ins are no longer useful.

Of course there are other services sharing and bookmarks available, but Delicious and Yahoo Buzz also played an important role in the exchange of links and bookmarks. I hope that Yahoo's think again about the same and did not exit the service. Meanwhile, do not forget to share your views on the closure of the above products Yahoo.
