Yahoo Buzz, the famous web portal that is used by website publishers to post their content to the world and attract millions of Yahoo users via Yahoo buzz, is about to be axed and killed as Yahoo! other service Mybloglog.
A blog post from Yahoo said that the website will be inaccessible from 21 April. It wrote, “As of this date, you will be unable to access the Yahoo! Buzz site. This was a hard decision. However this will help us focus on our core strengths and new innovations. check the official announcement.”
Not only Buzz, an anonymous user who leaked the Buzz axing information at Twitter, also claimed that Yahoo will shut down other services like Delicious.
Wicked! The axing of Buzz is the continuation of Yahoo’s mission of cutting down its services.
The readers should know that Yahoo started the service cut down with Mybloglog. Again, an important factor to note here is that Mybloglog solely depends on Bloggers and web publishers. Small web owners, as well as bloggers, use mybloglog to gain traffic to their sites.
In my view, i think Yahoo is fed up of giving the attraction to web owners and gaining no advertising values. Cutting down of Buzz as well as Mybloglog by Yahoo in my view is the perfect example of Yahoo’s frustration with other websites
