What is Yahoo! MyBloglog?
For those who are unaware, let me first tell you what Yahoo! MyBlogLog is. MyBlogLog, is a yahoo service that lets bloggers see who their readers are and help the readers to interact with the authors in return.
MyBlogLog was acquired by Yahoo in early 2007 for $10 million, and at the time, provided a way for bloggers to easily create a community for their readers
Official Yahoo! website says, the reason for dropping the MyBlogLog service is due to the emergence of Facebook and twitter,that made the yahoo based service to decline for months which led them to drop the service.
I am really surprised to see Yahoo! abandoning its service. Its not daily we come across a giant like Yahoo to cut off its service.
Yahoo also reports they are also considering to abandon Delicious service later this year.
