Yahoo Inc. started Yahoo map service which is going to be close by the end of June 2015. Though other Yahoo properties like Flickr will continue to support map but Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo map for better resources.
Other search engines like Google and Bing is trying to enhance their map services but strange to know that Yahoo is shutting down this service. Like maps Yahoo is also going to shutting down Yahoo pipes – a developer tool and support for some products. In Spain, Yahoo movies and in France & Canada Yahoo music, in UK Yahoo TV and Yahoo autos is also going to shutting down in UK, Italy, France, Spain and Germany.
