UPDATED POST and Clarification: Yahoo and a Delicious Shutdown? + Other Yahoo Properties

UPDATE: We decided to use the words "confirmed" and "shutdown" in the post from earlier today because stories from TechCrunch, AllThingsD/WSJ, and News.com appear to be clear in the words they use.***

However, Search Engine Land reports that Delicious is a "maybe" for a shutdown. The NY Times says the same thing.

So, because of the disparity (and the respect we have for SEL and the NY Times) we've removed the word confirmed and added a question mark in a new headline.

Apologies for the confusion and the possibility of jumping the gun.

*** From ReadWriteWeb: "R.I.P. Delicious: You Were So Beautiful to Me"

**** Business Insider has posted a screenshot of a tweet from Yahoo's Chief Product Office, Blake Irving, saying when he finds who leaked the login info to view today's closed company meeting, he plans to fire/sack/say so long to leaker. See the tweet here.

    In the second part of her analysis of FreePint's research into visibility, Robin Neidorf digs down into the findings relating to content. Respondents were asked how they rate varying types of content such as licensed or inbound email content, as well as a host of other variations such as dissertations and research whitepapers. Questions also looked at the goals and objectives of visibility work and barriers to progress such as licensing issues and free search engines. Variations by industry were also investigated.

    Monday, 30th March 2015

    Delivering content to users which is of value to them but they did not necessarily know exists is likely to become more advanced in the near future due to the launch of "intelligent" algorithm-driven products like Delve in Office 365. However, Steve Bynghall explains, there are still a number of other options for organisations which aid this type of discovery.
