Yahoo! Acquires Tomfoolery

We are very excited and proud to announce that Tomfoolery has been acquired by Yahoo! We have travelled far and wide, starting off in a tiny room at NextSpace Coworking, with the mission to make work awesome. Now it’s time for us to move to the next phase of our journey. As of today, we will cease operations as Tomfoolery, Inc. and join Yahoo! to help build the next generation of their communications and community products. If you’ve seen some of our backgrounds, you’ll see that we have long loved Yahoo! and the products it has created. We are so incredibly proud and excited to be part of the new Yahoo!

We will stop running Anchor (and for some of you lucky Alpha users, Action) effective immediately. We will be reaching out to all of our users with support details. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help by contacting us at On the plus side, we get to immediately start working on building beautiful, human communication products at Yahoo to help solve some really big and exciting problems.

So many of you have been our passionate advocates, and we can’t thank you all enough for your support throughout our journey. We hope you’ll continue to part of our adventures in building the next generation of social products.

Here’s to the future. Ours and Yours.

Appropriate Hugs,

Team Tomfoolery
