Yahoo said on Friday that it will discontinue its MyWeb service on March 18 and is encouraging people to use other Yahoo bookmarking services.
"As we have continued to innovate with the 2.0 release of Delicious and the upgraded Yahoo Bookmarks, we saw that MyWeb users' needs are being served by our newer products," the company said in a posting on its Yahoo Search Blog.
The company has been de-emphasizing the service since at least when it started sending MyWeb users to Delicious and offering them the option of using Yahoo Bookmarks.
Yahoo launched MyWeb in 2005, the same year it bought Delicious.
