Yahoo Pulls Plug On GeoCities

Remember ten years ago when Yahoo! paid $4.6 billion for GeoCities?

A posting on a Yahoo help page for GeoCities on Thursday said the service was no longer accepting new customers and that it will be closing later this year, with more details about how individuals can save their data coming this summer. The move comes a few days after Yahoo said it would lay off nearly 700 workers, or 5 percent of its workforce.

I’m just surprised to learn people still have GeoCities sites.
