former employees of the company.

contained in social networks.

The five members Jybe team will be joining Yahoo.
"We can't wait to apply what we've learned about recommendation,
personalization and the mobile experience to the hundreds of
millions of people who come to Yahoo every day," the Jybe team said
in a statement.
The Jybe service will be closed down, but a tool will be provided
to users so they can download and keep all their data.
