Yahoo Finally Discovers Social Networking And Blogs

from the took-'em-long-enough dept

Well, it took them long enough. Now that people have pretty much stopped talking about social networking sites, Yahoo is getting into the game with a combined social networking/blogging/photo sharing/etc. tool that basically seems to take everything that had buzz from the past few years and clump it all together. It’s not a huge surprise, of course. People had been expecting Yahoo to get into this business for ages — and there have been plenty of rumors about them buying some of the independent players in the space. While the details seem to suggest that there’s something more, it still sounds like a me-too play. It’ll be interesting to see if they can do anything to make it more interesting.
