Well, it looked interesting when Yahoo Mash became available to everyone. Then it just got boring. I remember my Vietnamese friends asking for a Yahoo Mash invitation about a year ago. In a short time roughly 72 people were added as my friends. Then Facebook started to become popular in Vietnam, literally. My last comment on my Yahoo Mash was seven months ago. I have not seen a friend update their Mash in about 8 months.
Today Yahoo announced they will shut down Yahoo Mash on Sept. 9th. For the Vietnamese market, I am curious to see how long Yahoo 360plus will last. It had intended to move Vietnamese 360 users over but most of my Vietnamese friends are remaining with Yahoo 360 and/or getting accounts with Facebook. Yahoo 360 is still king here but I can see Facebook dethroning it within the next couple of years, especially as a younger generation starts getting connected to the internet here.
In the meantime, it’s ‘Bye Bye’ to Yahoo Mash.
