A slide has been leaked at Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO). The slide reveals that some of Yahoo!’s properties will be “sunset,” merged, and make features. The sunset properties include Yahoo! Picks, Altavista, AllTheWeb, Delicious, MyBlogLog, and Yahoo! Buzz.
“Part of our organizational streamlining involves cutting our investment in underperforming or off-strategy products to put better focus on our core strengths and fund new innovation in the next year and beyond. We continuously evaluate and prioritize our portfolio of products and services, and do plan to shut down some products in the coming months such as Yahoo! Buzz, our Traffic APIs, and others. We will communicate specific plans when appropriate,” said Yahoo! in a statement to SearchEngineLand.com.
