http://techcrunch.com – Yahoo completed its exit from South Korea service today after operating for 15 years in that country, reports Yonhap News Agency. This move also marks the first Asian market Yahoo is leaving. The company announced earlier this month that it planned to close down its South Korea Web portal at the end of December. Since then, users who go onto the site have been greeted with a message that says it will be shut down by December 31 (link via Google Translate). Back in October, Yahoo announced that it would pull out of South Korea by the end of 2012 as CEO Marissa Mayer focuses on stronger markets. (IT news)
