Yahoo Will Shut Down Unpopular Products

Published: March 3, 2013

In order to focus resources in its most popular products, Yahoo decided to shut down the services that did not become a daily habit among users.

Effective next April 1, the company will stop these products:

  • Yahoo! Avatars
  • Yahoo! app for BlackBerry
  • Yahoo! Clues (beta)
  • Yahoo! App Search
  • Yahoo! Sports IQ
  • Yahoo! Message Boards website

Furthermore, on April 16, 2013, Yahoo! Updates API will be no longer supported by the company.

As these were described by Yahoo as "the closures we’re announcing today," there may be more in the near future.
