Yahoo!MyBlogLog to be Discontinued
Yesterday I received a surprising message on my Yahoo e-mail saying that Yahoo!MyBlogLog shall no longer be in service as of 24 May 2011.
This is a sad news for me considering that MyBlogLog was the first online social media that I have actively participated since I started blogging around three years ago. At that time I have not joined Blog Catalog, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.
MyBlogLog has enabled me to know, communicate, follow 1,309 blogs and make friends with bloggers who authored them, all of which was done FREELY! MyBlogLog's widget can easily be found on the right hand side of this blog.
As a consequence of this cessation of services, Yahoo shall delete everything in MyBlogLog, therefore it has warned members to save whatever information they think necessary before 24 May 2011, after that they would be totally deleted.
If you want to know more details about the discontinuation of MyBlogLog, please click here.
As an alternative resource for keeping up with our contacts, MyBlogLog suggested us to try Yahoo! Pulse. Although Yahoo! Pulse doesn't provide blog-tracking services, but it is a useful way to streaming information from multiple social media feeds (Yahoo! Pulse, Facebook, Twitter) in one place. Also, we may be able to find and connect to our MyBlogLog contacts there. For more details, please visit Yahoo! Pulse.
Due to this fact, I would like to request all my friends who have followed my blog and whose blogs I have followed on MyBlogLog follow each other on Google Friend Connect, and/or Networkedblogs their widgets can be found on the right hand side of this blog.
