A good explanation of the whole “yahoo buying tumblr” thing.
You want to know why most of the users here are freaking out? You ought to look into Yahoo’s history in internet and social media, perhaps read this post and the article it is linked with (here).
Yahoo has not been successful when it comes to buying and integrating its community with the sites it buys. Flickr is a PRIME example of this. You think just because there is a new CEO from Google that it is going to change it’s “cool” factor. FACE IT, We are being used by Yahoo in this deal and we are going to get fucked in the arse - and if you’re into that, not in the good way. We are going to have to bend over and take it from them. This kind of integration has NEVER gone smoothly, and it won’t start now. Yahoo is not cool and it may seem like they are bailing our arses out of being shut down, but you think many of us won’t walk away; even if it is unwilling? I am calling bullshit on the people who are mad at those of us freaking out.
Yahoo will not do much good to this site. We have too much copyright violations, porn, and lack of funds for them to just leave us alone. We have the right to freak out. We will be monitored, our home is going to barged in upon and we are going to shoved over to some site that most people don’t like and be forced to signed up for it just like Flickr. We are going to become the same dying star and we will not live on as you would hope.
Yes, we are freaking out and there are many good reasons. You think half of the people on here want this to happen? Have you looked up anything at all or are you to arrogant to acknowledge the facts or this companies past endevours and how much they do not care about you and your opinions and how you feel about the site being changed or not. If this deal goes through, we are screwed like every site they bought. If this deal does not go through we will lose all the money we have and we will be shut down. As for Mayer, she is using us to try to prove something that can never be proved for Yahoo.
So the possible outcomes for this site don’t look good on either end. Should the deal go through then you can either adapt and change or pack your bags up and leave. This site will not stay the same if Yahoo buys it, and it will die if someone else doesn’t buy us. We can sell out and be dissatisfied or lose the site. I don’t like either outcome, do you?
To quote one article ; “If the Internet really were a series of tubes, Yahoo would be the leaking sewage pipe, covering everything it comes in contact with in watered-down shit.”
‘By the time we were looking at Flickr, Yahoo was getting the shit kicked out of it by Google. The race was on to find other areas of search where we could build a commanding lead,’ says one high ranking Yahoo executive familiar with the deal.
Flickr offered a way to do that. Because Flickr photos were tagged and labeled and categorized so efficiently by users, they were highly searchable.
‘That is the reason we bought Flickr—not the community. We didn’t give a shit about that. The theory behind buying Flickr was not to increase social connections, it was to monetize the image index. It was totally not about social communities or social networking. It was certainly nothing to do with the users’
But moreover, Yahoo needed to leverage this thing that it had just bought. Yahoo wanted to make sure that every one of its registered users could instantly use Flickr without having to register for it separately. It wanted Flickr to work seamlessly with Yahoo Mail. It wanted its services to sing together in harmony, rather than in cacophonous isolation. The first step in that is to create a unified login. That’s great for Yahoo, but it didn’t do anything for Flickr, and it certainly didn’t do anything for Flickr’s (extremely vocal) users.
Yahoo’s RegID solution turned out to be a nightmare for the existing community. You could no longer use your existing Flickr login to get to your photos, you had to use a Yahoo one. If you did not already have a Yahoo account, you had to create one. And you did not even log in on Flickr’s home page, upon arriving, you were immediately kicked over to a Yahoo login screen.
Although Flickr grew tremendously with the huge influx of Yahoo users, the existing community of highly influential early adopters was infuriated. It was an inelegant transition, and seemed to ignore what the community wanted (namely, a way to log in without having to sign up for a Yahoo account). This was the opposite of what people had come to expect from Flickr. It was anti-social.
And it very much delivered a message, to both users and to the team at Flickr: You’re part of Yahoo now.””
