Dallas, Texas 09/03/2013 (Financialstrend) – Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) will put an end to its Taiwanese blogging site Wretch.cc permanently. The technology giant has declared that it would close down that podium on December 26.
Yahoo got hold of Wretch during July 2007 with expectations that it would make a money-spinning venture into the Taiwanese blogging land. It took the firm 6 year time to comprehend that it should lastly stop the service. It did not straightly state the cause behind the verdict but market spectators think it was a reasonable verdict as the firm takes a different approach under its present management.
The Internet Company is actively strengthening its services in the region. It was assumed that the move to allow Wretch go came after Yahoo adopted during the month of May a bigger blogging stage, Tumblr, which it purchased for around $1.1 billion. Earlier this month, it also declared proposal to further reinforce its photo-sharing service Flickr via putting up a client service center for the web site.
Shut down in stages
As per the company’s declaration, it would halt novel registrations on the Taiwanese internet site on September 2. But, it ensured the site’s users that Wretch would carry on operating under normal conditions. The browsing characteristic of the web site wouldn’t be affected.
Bythat time, Wretch users must retrieve a backup of their statistics on the site for relocation of their data elsewhere. Yahoo has recommended transmitting effigies to its photo-sharing site Flickr.
Putting an end to the service
Commencing October 30, Wretch would discontinue facilitating addition or editing of novel content into users’ web logs. Subsisting blog pages and entries would still be accessible for surfing, though. By December 26, all of the Website’s services would be completely and permanently closure. Existing users are anticipated to shift to recommended services or move to other local or global blogging podiums.
