Yahoo Photos to be discontinued!

According to Techcrunch Yahoo Photos will be discontinued soon in favour of Flickr. I am a fan of Yahoo Photos and user for more than 6 years. I wish Flicr is shut in favour of Yahoo photos since the number of Yahoo users photos are more than Flickr. Yahoo photos is the leader in online photo site as per the data from Techcrunch:

Yahoo Photos ---> 31.1 Million unique visitors
Flickr ---> 28.5 Million unique visitors
Photobucket ---> 28.1 Million unique visitors
Facebook Photos ---> 23.5 Million unique visitors

It is an irony that eventhough Yahoo photos is the leader in photo sharing site it is getting discontinued. I wish it is otherwise. Any how I hope the migration from Yahoo Photos to Flickr will be less painful!!

Online Yahoo Messenger!

After Meebo and other online messengers Yahoo released its online version of Yahoo Messenger. It was obvious that the online messenger usage had increased drastically in the recent past and it is likely to grow. So Yahoo is prepared to tap this market by relasing its online version of messenger today. Unlike other online messengers Yahoo Web messenger is built on flash 9. The interface is very cool and stores the chat history!

Recently Yahoo integrated its chat with Yahoo mail. The online messenger is evolving and Webmessenger from yahoo fuels that evolution.
