    This article could have just as easily been titled 8 Yahoo products you’ve never heard of. Minus the directory

    Yahoo Groups is a mainstay for churches, affinity groups, and people who know nothing about technology. I have a 2000 person email group that has been running on it since 2000. I wouldn’t even know where to migrate it seamlessly, even though I know how to use most tech tools. Google Groups doesn’t have the same functionality.

    I’d be upset to see Flickr get shut down. I think it has one of the best interfaces and features of any photo hosting service, including Facebook’s.

    Only if you haven’t been paying attention.

     Really, Drew?

    Agreed 100%. I’ve been using Yahoo Groups since before Yahoo bought it! It was Onelist and then became eGroups and then Yahoo bought it — and the product hasn’t developed much since then.

    And you’re right that Google Groups is not an adequate replacement.

    I’d be sad to see Flickr go. Also 
    Yahoo Groups hosts some good, well, groups!

    I can’t see Yahoo shutting down Flickr. I think they’d be more likely to sell it. As for the rest of the listed services, I can’t say I’d mourn any of them.

    Don’t get me wrong, I personally have heard of them. Let me clarify by saying that businesses and people that Yahoo relies upon for a more mass appeal have not heard of these products.

     It’s really sad to see … a mixture of hope’s and dreams, ritually slaughtered.
    I think the first thing.  The new Yahoo CEO better do is hire a security team/bodyguard service or George Clooney “From: Up in the Air (Movie), to handle the disgruntled yahoo tech employee’s who didn’t jump ship when they should have.  I think his popularity will be in Citi Bank Executive level. This is really ugly.  It’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
