Yahoo! into Social Software


This would be an exciting news a year ago. But today, it sound just like “me too me too”. Yahoo, where have you been in the last 2 years? You are too late to the party. Why not acquire SixApart who is already doing very cool stuff?

Internet media company Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO – news) is likely to build and buy tools that help its users create, publish and search blogs, Susquehanna Financial Group Marianne Wolk said in a note on Friday.

Wolk also said she also expects the company to expand into social networking software, which lets users share and organize content.

ps: I am not affiliated with SixApart in anyway – altho I have friends who work there.
