Is Yahoo's Integration of eGroups Finished?
eGroups users have probably noticed by now that Yahoo! has acquired the company, and it is now called Yahoo! Groups. This is probably a win-win situation for the two of them. But, a question that lingers now that the integration appears to be underway is, have they finished yet?
Here are a few reasons why we ask the question:
- There is no apparent integration between Yahoo! Groups and MyYahoo!.
- It's really tough to find a way from the Yahoo! homepage to Yahoo! Groups.
- There seems to be little difference in core features between Yahoo! Clubs and Yahoo! Groups.
At least two of the three observations listed above are easily fixed. It's also not clear if there is any demand for consolidation of Yahoo! Clubs and Yahoo! Groups. But, it strikes us as strange that the integration of eGroups has been done in a way that seems unfinished. This is not the way Yahoo! typically does business, in our opinion.
