finally came to terms with the sobering truth: they were the Nickelback of tech. And just as Nickelback fans ultimately abandon them for the Foo Fighters, most of Yahoo’s users have slowly osmosed over to Google. With private messaging, a common area to chat with and meet new people, and personal profiles, Yahoo had a sort of Web 1.0 social network in the early 2000s.

After the arrival of smartphones, they prevented Flickr from creating their own app but didn’t create one of their own till years later, and what they did create was so bad as to chase away the remaining users. This form of human-curated content was like a Web 2.0 version of what Yahoo originally did, so it made for a logical acquisition.

But, predictably, Yahoo worked their brown magic on it: instead of replacing Yahoo Bookmarks with Delicious, they kept the two products side-by-side and let the latter wither and die while Reddit and Twitter (and Digg, and Pinterest) took its place.

Unlike Yahoo, Tumblr was wildly popular and culturally relevant, even a little dangerous with its adult content. Mayer kept her “hands off” promise for about a year before Yahooing the hell out of Tumblr.

It was an injection of young and hip into the company’s frankly embarrassing demographic. Yahoo had finally found itself and joined the world of social, for real. First she forced the oil-and-water Yahoo and Tumblr sales teams to work together selling crappy top-down content for a neutered version of Tumblr referred to as “digital magazines”.

Blocking the offending chat user would do nothing because booters fabricated screen names.

While Yahoo sat with a collective thumb up its ass, third-party developers created Yahoo Messenger clients, such as Yah Elite, YMLite, and YTunnel, which were harder to boot.

By 2012, Yahoo Chat was dead, and, in 2016, all desktop versions of Yahoo Messenger were discontinued.

Still clinging desperately to existence are mobile versions that sit alongside 100 other, better mobile chat apps, and it’s only a matter of time before they themselves disappear.

The story of Yahoo Messenger was not a unique one in Yahoo’s sordid history.
