Yahoo Acquires Vizify, A Social Data Visualization Startup

Vizify announced today it is joining the ranks of Yahoo—becoming the latest company to be picked up by Big Purple and included in its seemingly arbitrary suite of startups. It was not made clear how much Yahoo paid for the company, but we’ll update the story as soon as we learn more about the terms of the deal.

Vizify, the Portland, Oregon-based startup founded in 2011, turns your social media data like tweets, posts and pictures, into interactive infographics and videos. The company is now sunsetting all its services, including deactivating all accounts and paid plans.

Here is an example of “My Year On Twitter” created with Vizify at the end of 2013.
