Verizon subsidiary Oath has announced that Yahoo Messenger is officially shutting down next month. Once one of the most popular and most innovative messaging service, Yahoo Messenger has waned in popularity in recent years…
Oath says that Yahoo Messenger is shutting down on July 17th. The company is redirecting users to its new group messaging application, Squirrel. Interestingly, Squirrel is still in private beta, and it’s unclear if the service will open up to the public before Yahoo Messenger’s shutdown next month.

After 20 years of history the Yahoo messenger shuts down. First created in March 1998 it quickly became famous for me and was a must have messenger from 2004-2010 in my honest opinion!

Rest in Peace Yahoo Messenger!

Probably very few people now, but it just reminds us of all the good times back in the days. Back in the days when Youtube was not all about making money, or when gsa blasts were still a great thing to do :p
