What It Looks Like To Get Acquired By Yahoo In 2014

Posted on

Faithful users of the social media visualization startup, Vizify were greeted with a most unfortunate email on Tuesday afternoon. Pretty much everything after the cheery subject line (We've been acquired by Yahoo! What this means for you.) reads like a reluctant goodbye letter or apology from a dear friend. "Many of you counted on your Vizify Bios," the services lamented. "Please know that we'll miss our pages, too."

Uh, welcome to Yahoo!
