What Has Google Killed In The Past 7 Years?

Earlier this month, we had to say goodbye to Google Reader, a much-loved RSS reader. Whenever Google kills one of their products, disappointment inevitably spreads across the Internet. Over the years, Google have axed many of their projects like Google Buzz, Google Wave, and Aardvark; just to name a few. Search marketing company WordStream put together this infograph depicted the various products that failed, in Google’s eyes.

    I think it would be interesting to look at the reasoning some of these were killed. Google Video became redundant after Youtube was purchased, so no surprise there that they kept the better known property. Some, like Talk, were integrated with other initiatives and renamed, or like Picnik, which was most likely integrated with Picasa. Some were obviously under-performers, so why waste resources on projects that don’t get used to it’s fullest potential or are just money pits with no return. Even Yahoo and Microsoft have done this over the years. Of course, some of these could simply be bad choices, which others have done in the past as well, including purchasing them in the first place.

    Google’s many service has no point and not user friendly so no wonder now they are killing all those service that has no practical use,especially in today’s world with so much competition.If they really want their service popular then they should make it easier for everyone including for those who doesn’t have so much knowledge about computer and internet..How come google can’t get it?
