Dear Yahoo! 360° customer,
We will be officially closing Yahoo! 360° on July 13, 2009, to focus our efforts on making your new profile on Yahoo! the place where you connect with the people who matter to you most. As a result, you will need to move your 360° information to your new profile before this date. After July 12, 2009, your content on Yahoo! 360° will no longer be accessible.
But who cares?
I am not trying to be mean and sound ridiculous!
Yahoo 360 was already not very functional anyway. I had a yahoo 360 profile. I actually encouraged many of my friends to be connected through 360.yahoo.com.
Here is my two cents on yahoo 360:
The good parts:
- One can nudge, and leave a message.
- The idea of "Blast message" was father of microblogging(?)
- easy connection
- No adsense (ha ha what a joke!)
- I mean no frameworks for flexible page elements.
- Only three feeds allowed to be displayed
- not easy to navigate
- creepy header with yahoo ads
To me what made me leave 360 platform was the fact that there was no blogger tool available. I could do no experiments and the navigation was always nightmare. It was very rigid and yet claimed to be a blog tool! Good decision that they are closing! It will allow them to concentrate on something useful.
