MyBlogLog to Rebrand and Make Significant Changes: I believe that this is good news. Yahoo is going to rebrand MyBlogLog and they will make some effort to remove offensive photos, remove certain types of sites and make it more corporate friendly. I liked the product and I think that some housekeeping will go a long way in making the tools more usable and presentable.

    on the one hand, it’s good that they’re rebranding/redesigning. useful site, but hard on the eyes. and the name doesn’t exactly sound cool.

    it’s a shame about the censorship. gravatars at least gives you the option to set your site to “unrated”. and if they start policing some avatars, presumably they’ll have to start removing copyrighted images as well.

    Thanks for sharing. Looks like Yahoo realizes how powerful this tool is becoming.

    I didn’t realize Yahoo! owned MyBlogLog. Where have I been!?

    I actually met with Robyn Tippens this weekend who is now the new Community Manager for MyBlogLog and also now with Yahoo. She talked this weekend at the SOBCon event in Chicago about a lot of upcoming things for MyBlogLog. It’s going to be exciting the things to come for sure.

    Personally, I am glad that some of the avatars are going away. I cannot understand why I need to look at someone with size 64 fake chest and find that pertinent to building a community. If you want adult, then please go and build an adult version of MyBlogLog.

    I hope MyBlogLog doesn’t go south like Geocities.

    Keep the offensive content – dump the rest. ;)

    It’s about time. I was getting so fed up with pictures of young ladies in thongs and ugly guys flipping the bird showing up on my site that I disabled it…

    Now, it’s just my ugly mug…and no, I am not wearing a thong.
