Yahoo has recently announced that they are going to shut down Yahoo Maps by the end of June. The site maps.yahoo.com will be terminated for better alignment of its resource.
Yahoo said “This decision is just to align our resource to Yahoo’s priorities as our business has evolved since the launch of Yahoo Maps eight years ago”.
It’s a biggest surprise as it is shutting down its eight years old Yahoo maps, though Yahoo search and its properties along with Flickr decided to supported yahoo maps. From past few years, Yahoo had set itself back with limited innovation around maps.
Along with shutting down its map, it has also announced that there will be some product changes and end of Yahoo pipes, a developer tool.
