Yahoo acquires real-time polling service GoPollGo

GoPollGo announced that it is shutting down all polls and services in the site it has previously operated in. The company, which cites its user base in the millions, will no longer support embeddable widgets and mobile apps. No word has been given on when or if the services will resume.

Yahoo’s acquisition of GoPollGo is likely attributed to talent as the young company has developed a mobile version of its technology. The Internet giant has been known to acquire promising companies in recent months to expand its ranks of mobile developers. Yahoo plans to shift the whole of its product line to accommodate its growing mobile users base.

The company has so far acquired Astrid and Milewise. It has also met with company owners and executives of the online video giant Hulu for a possible acquisition deal. Hulu’s owners have been looking to sell the video service for some time and Yahoo is considering its platform to strengthen its video content in its products.

Yahoo also plans to develop its product line in mobile space due to the rising number of mobile users, thanks in part to the growing market of smart phones and tablets.
