MyBlogLog will be closed from 24 May 2011. Yahoo also decided to close other bookmarking services like Delicious, Yahoo Buzz, AltaVista, Yahoo Picks and Yahoo Bookmarks. Yahoo bought the MyBlogLog in 2007 for $10 million to provide blogger with easy to create community for their readers.
Social bookmarking web service Delicious will be next on Yahoo’s agenda to be closed but Yahoo says that they are looking for buyers rather than shutting down the web sites. Well closing of MyBlogLog is bad news for those bloggers who have successful communities about their blogs on MyBlogLog.
