Yahoo Acquires Upcoming.org
Late yesterday, Yahoo completed its acquisition of Upcoming.org in an apparent move to strengthen its local search and regional service offerings. Upcoming.org is a user-managed social event calendar that lends its unique technology to allowing registered visitors to manage and share local events through a central searchable portal and syndicated calendars. Yahoo already offers local search as part of its portal of services, however, most content is currently limited to business and public service information. Integration of content and functionality from Upcoming.org should help Yahoo better provide information pertaining to local interests and events.
