Here comes the end of one more product by Yahoo! Buzz will remain silent from today in India.

Yahoo! Buzz was started three years back on February 26, 2008. Yahoo! Buzz was a community-based news article website, heavily derived from Digg, which combines the features of social bookmarking and syndication through a user interface that allows editorial control.

@Yahoo! Buzz users were allowed to share links, stories, images etc. It created a hopes that it would drive larger traffic to their site and would give them an advantage over larger online media companies such as Google or MSN, which are Yahoo!’s largest competitors in terms of search engines that provide services and web features to its customers.

One interesting feature of Buzz was it allowed users to modify the content after submission also.

But all these came to end when leaked slide showed Yahoo! Killing Delicious and Yahoo! Buzz.

Well that is clear. Say bye-bye to Buzz. Maybe Google will join them soon as Google Buzz is performing very low when compared to Digg, StumbleUpon and Reddit.

Please share your thoughts on this. 🙂

    Is yahoo just behind profits? First they closed pages then blogroll and now buzz. I think they don't care about users and always keep looking for profit from projects or they are not able to understand how to run social websites…

    I think Yahoo just only make profits behind Buzz. And they don't really care about users and just makes profits from it, or they are not able how to run social websites. Thanks for the info, Vinay.
