Yahoo! on Monday told Buzz users that the site service will not be available after April 21.
Yahoo has posted a message about the discontinuation of Buzz
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, a community-based news article website, heavily derived from Digg, was launched in 2008. As per a leaked confidential slide, Yahoo would also shut down Delicious, Yahoo Picks and Yahoo Bookmarks. Of these services, Buzz will be the first one to close down officially.
So yet another “Yahoo!” service bites the dust. What do you think, Will Yahoo! bloom or doom?
