The other common services of Yahoo! that shutdown were :
- Yahoo! Mash, a social networking service lasted for a year ended in September 2008.
- Yahoo! Live, a real-time video broadcasting experiment ended after a 6 months stint in December 2008.
- Yahoo! Content Match, a Google Adsense clone shuts down in Europe.
- Jumpcut, an online video editing tool closed down just a couple of days back (15th June 2009).
- Yahoo! Podcasts, a podcasting directory end after 2 years in October 2007.
- Yahoo! Auctions, an eBay competitor ended in September 2008.
- Yahoo! Photos shut down in September 2007 but got replaced with their better acquired service, Flickr.
- Yahoo Briefcase, a free storage service ended after a decade in March 2009.
- Geocities, the 90's most famous free static website hosting service is closing this year - but this one is not as a result of failure - after all it was one of the biggest success stories in the 90s - it just got worn off - retired - antique - much better ones available/evolved over the last 15 years.
Yahoo! may not be dying, but its definitely try to recover its No.1 position it had a decade-and-a-half ago.
