Yahoo tests social network

September 18, 2007

Article about yahoo’s attempt to crack myspace and facebook’s domain; more at techcrunch. Also some brief discussion about whether this is the end of Yahoo 360. I wondered the same thing.

Of course, mash is invitation only and I didn’t receive an invitation (despite the fact that I really have been using yahoo’s services for EVER it feels like…)

I always wonder how they determine who gets invites….
Anyhow, if you have one, would you mind sharing? email me at georgiawebgurl@yahoo.com

Yahoo photos is closing

August 24, 2007

Well, I guess it’s no surprise to me. Flickr is superior…

——————
We will officially close Yahoo! Photos on Thursday, September 20, 2007, at 9 p.m. PDT
. Until then, we are offering you the opportunity to move to another photo sharing service (Flickr, KODAK Gallery, Shutterfly, Snapfish, or Photobucket). We’re making the transfer real simple, and with a couple clicks we’ll automatically move your photos to Flickr or wherever you want them. You can also download your original-resolution photos back to your computer, or buy an archive CD from our featured partner (for users of the New Yahoo! Photos only). All you need to do is tell us what to do with your photos before we close, after which any photos remaining on Yahoo! Photos will be deleted and no longer accessible.….

some kind of new stuff from yahoo…

February 13, 2007

yahoo pipes (rss feed & aggregator)
http://pipes.yahoo.com/

and 360 which seems set to take on umm. myspace(? facebook?)
http://360.yahoo.com/

…and then there is new aol video website which also has taken the place of the wonderful multimedia search engine, singing fish. From what I’ve read elsewhere, singingfish was purchased by aol in 2003, but they have just recently taken down the whole site.
