I think you already know that we love Bix.com.
Thursday, Yahoo bought Bix.com for an undisclosed sum. (Ironically, Thursday I was reminiscing about the great time we had at a fantastic Yahoo party the night before.)
According to the New York Times article linked above, “Yahoo said it planned to keep Bix.com as a stand-alone site and also to integrate it with some of its other social media properties, which include Yahoo Groups, the social network Yahoo 360 and the photo-sharing site Flickr.”
To me, that sounds like everybody wins–and, most importantly, users are getting the best of social media, particularly with Flickr.
