Yahoo! is incredible. After dark some important services in recent years (Yahoo! Mash - Since closed beta, Yahoo! Photos - Closed service and users were invited to migrate to Flickr, Yahoo! 360 - Closed, etc ...), now turned their "attention" by Geocities.
final notice: GeoCities is closing.
Dear Yahoo! GeoCities customer,
We're writing to remind you That Yahoo! GeoCities, our free web site building service and community, Is closing on October 26, 2009.
On October 26, 2009, your GeoCities Will no Longer Appear site on the Web, And you Will no longer be able to access your GeoCities account and files.
is It was a service free hostingWhich offered a couple tools to create fast web pages. There are few people who have chosen this service to create basic web pages, and not a few are those who have used the Yahoo! Geocities disk space to store personal data.
Decision YAHOO! To close GeoCities, in my opnia is less "shifted". There are people who Web pages for several years on GeoCitiesAnd a move hosting / URL change not think it is welcome. In addition, Yahoo! provides users with free hosting solution that no alternative than Yahoo Hosting solution "for only $ 4.99 the month".
As crap as it should be done all the way under the header of the page geocities.com They are displayed banners services paid hosting of Yahoo !.
What confidence can we have in Yahoo !, as we see from year to close their services? we want longevity, stability si innovation. Although they are free services, Yahoo! is a company that it should have to inspire confidence. Just as easy as the decisions to shut down Yahoo! 360, Yahoo! Photos and Yahoo! GeoCities can just as easily close others. Yahoo! MessengerThat knows it is not a profitable business for Yahoo !, as a potential target service (well that I do not use). Even if Yahoo! Messenger has several million users, after closing Geocities.com, Google will ease about 32 million pages. As many as are presently indexed by Google.
Finally, Yahoo! have shown stability and longevity, so it's time to prove and little innovation. Launched a new service for the general public (has only been available to testers a while). Yahoo! Meme.
Yahoo! Meme is outstanding service and all new. If you have an account Twitter, You are very careful not to confuse it with the Yahoo! Meme.
The show looks good and is easy to use. I see many who have activated accounts Yahoo! Meme post images to hard. I'm curious how long this service. One year? Two?
