Yahoo Buzz to shut down

Yahoo Buzz has finally created some buzz after all! Yahoo has told the Buzz users that the service will lo longer be available after 21 April.

Yahoo! Buzz will be discontinued as of April 21, 2011. As of this date, you will be unable to access the Yahoo! Buzz site. This was a hard decision. However this will help us focus on our core strengths and new innovations.

We appreciate your patronage.

The Yahoo! Buzz Team.

Yahoo Buzz was meant to be a competitor to websites like Digg, Reddit, etc, and was thrown open to bloggers back in Aug 2008, but it never really took off unfortunately,

RIP Yahoo! Buzz.
