Yahoo! Buzz bites the dust

We saw this coming, but Yahoo! has announced it is going to cut support for the Digg/Google Buzz like site, Yahoo! Buzz. The message on the website:

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.

Yahoo! Buzz launches back in 2008 but never really took off. You could tell Yahoo! was getting ready to shut it down. We had heard that Yahoo! was “sunsetting” Yahoo! Buzz along with Delicious, AlltheWeb, MyBlogLog, Altavista, Yahoo! Bookmarks, and Yahoo! Picks, but Yahoo! eventually announced that it would be finding a new home for Delicious and would keep it running it in till it did. Why did Yahoo! reject AOLs acquisition offer again?

    naturally like your website but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll surely come back again.
