Yahoo! Buzz to close down on April 21
Another ones bites the dust — this time it’s Yahoo! Buzz. It’s the 2nd blog-related service that Yahoo! axed this year. The Yahoo! Buzz blog has this short message post a couple of weeks ago.
Yahoo! Buzz will be discontinued as of April 21, 2011. 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.
We appreciate your patronage.
The Yahoo! Buzz Team
Launched by Yahoo! back in August 2008, Buzz was supposed to copy what Digg was really good at — social news and bookmarking. But now that Digg is also slowly dying, Yahoo! Buzz took an early hint.
Last February, Yahoo! also shut down MyBlogLog.
