Yahoo might shutdown Mybloglog from next month (January). MyBlogLog is a service focused on bloggers to create an own blogger community. It also includes a widget which you can use on your website that displays information about MyBlogLog users who visit your website.
MyBlogLog was launched in January 2005 and in January 2007 acquired by Yahoo for just over 10 million U.S. dollars. Yahoo also closed GeoCities this year despite hosting service and blog system and social network Yahoo 360 °.
From the Yahoo Blog:
Frankly, it’s no secret within Yahoo! that we’re actively discussing the future of MyBlogLog. However, it’s also true that we have not made any final decisions at this point. Is a shutdown on the table? Sure, that’s an option. But there are other options as well. We know this creates some uncertainty for current MyBlogLog users. While we aren’t quite ready to share more details, we promise to keep you posted.
