Google.com going to shut down the hello.com. Tracking from wikipedia “Hello by Google‘s Picasa was a free computer program that allows users to send images across the Internet and publish them to their blogs. It is similar to an instant messaging program because one can send text, but Hello focuses on digital photographs. You can opt to view the same pictures as your friends in real-time. One of the advantages claimed at the website is that photos can be shared through firewalls.
Hello’s unique and very popular Bloggerbot IM service was canceled at the end of 2006, and users are instructed to try the Picasa ‘Blog This’ functionality for uploading pictures to their blogs. According to the official website, hello project will be shut down at May 18,2008.”
When I entered Hello.com I found “All good things come to an end. So it is with sadness that we say goodbye to Hello.
Hello will be shut down on May 15th.
We originally embarked on a mission to make photo sharing easier and more fun with Hello. We plan to keep carrying that torch in new projects to come.
We hope that you continue to enjoy the other sharing products Google offers including Picasa, Picasa Web Albums and Google Talk.“
Now remembering the songs of Deep Dish “Say Hello”. Now I have to tell “Say Bye Bye Hello”. Maybe Google has any new plans of that domain or just closed.
