    Those were the good years yahoo. Nahihirapan na siguro ang global marketing nila kung paano makacompete sa google. Wag lang sanang maapektuhan ang yahoomail department dahil may silbi pa rin naman yun.

    To give you guys a thing to think of… this might have happened.

    Department of ICT is now being talked in the congress which will try to regulate the internet connection in the Philippines. Along with this is the issue of ”internetwork peering”. Basically, internetwork peering allows exchange of data from different service provider for free. It’s analogous on texting. For example,and just an example,globe text promo should be applicable when texting smart users.

    Since yahoo ph is one of the most visited foreign site that is being hosted by PLDT, they get a lot of revenue from this. It is really a big issue if the time will come and they will have to share it with other providers for free or even with small charge. The last thing that they will do is to share their services to others for free.

    It’s all about the money.
    This simply means all marketing people are now in Google and Facebook.

    I still somewhat love you Yahoo.

  16. q says:

    …it’s because Philippines is so dumb and cannot compete its neighboring countries.

  17. Summer says:

    Yahoo! ran out of big brains to compete with other online giants.. Too bad.

  18. ho says:

    baka walng trafik ung yahoo sg

  19. ONE EYE says:

    Yahoo Philippines was closed because more Filipinos are awakened to the truth that media is just made to mind control the people. Also the one commentator was exposing that everything is controlled by the oligarch capitalist illuminati puppet masters.

  20. Fed says:

  24. Jefrey Pineda says:

    Kaya pala search ako ng search bakit di ako maka-direct sa PH Yahoo.
    Tapos puro SG news ang nakikita ko.

    Nakakalungkot man, di na ako makakakita ng mga local news para updated kahit di ako makapanood ng news at night.

  25. Joven John says:

    Damn..why did they took Yahoo Philippines? I am using that. :(

  26. Check out the website It is up and running again. Then, try to access and you will be redirected to Yahoo PH. Does the recent acquisition of Verizon to Yahoo has something to do with it?
