Yahoo Mash Is Shutting Down
Barely an year ago, I reviewed and gave out invitations of Yahoo!’s another attempt in social networks, Yahoo! Mash. And now I’ve got a mail from them saying that it is shutting down.
Yahoo should now learn that they cannot run a social networking site as this was the fourth failed attempt in a row. First they started off with Yahoo 360 which was later shut down, then a failed deal with Facebook and Bebo and now Yahoo! Mash.
Today, Yahoo! Mash emailed all the beta users that they will be shutting down this service on September 29, 2008.
Dear Yahoo! Mash member,
Thank you for trying out our Mash Beta service. We hope you had fun with it.
Please note that we will shut down Mash on September 29, 2008 As a result, your current profile on Mash will no longer be available. We strongly recommend that you return to http://mash.yahoo.com and copy the content that you wish to save onto a separate document.
