To be honest, I didn’t know that Yahoo has another bookmark service called MyWeb. Yes, I know there is MyYahoo which serves as a personalized start page similar to iGoogle. But seriously, Yahoo MyWeb?

Anyway, if you are like me who’ve just encountered Yahoo MyWeb and finds it interesting, it’s too late to acquiant ourselves with the service now. Yahoo has just announced that it will be shutting down the service come March 19. The move is of course part of Yahoo’s streamlining process this year.

Yahoo MyWeb was established sometime in 2005 to serve users in saving information they discover on the web. It runs along with Yahoo’s Delicious and the recently enhanced Yahoo! Bookmarks, but not as popular and as widely used by these two services. So, it is but logical that Yahoo shuts down the service. And focus on enhancing Delicious some more.

For those who are still using MyWeb,  Yahoo is offering three ways to migrate their MyWeb information – use Yahoo Bookmarks as all MyWeb accounts are available there, migrate to Delicious following three basic steps, or export their MyWeb bookmarks to other bookmarking services using Yahoo’s export tools.
