While I was spending the time and effort to allow Marketing Pilgrim readers the ability to add each post to both Yahoo’s My Web 2.0 and, the two companies were in secret acquisition talks.

As Jeremy Zawodny announces, Yahoo has acquired the social bookmarking/tagging service.

…the team will soon be working in close proximity to their fraternal twin, Flickr. And just like we’ve done with Flickr, we plan to give the resources, support, and room it needs to continue growing the service and community.
