I was shocked to read this news in Facebook that the Yahoo Messenger will shut down on August 5th this year. If this is true, I am sure that I will going to miss the Yahoo Messenger, I mean this is my first chat messaging over the Internet and until now I am still using it with my husband, oh well aside from Viber whenever I am in my IPad.
Now that we have Viber, Facebook instant messaging, what’s upp and Face Time, it is sad to say that YM instant messaging will say goodbye soon.
Here’s the good news, it will just say goodbye in Desktop but not with apps. The YM will still be used through apps.
The service started since 1998 and it gained popularity in 2000’s but with our fast phasing other instant messaging apps, YM will have to leave to give in the others. YM has served its purpose and I am sure will miss it.
