The Yahoo! Messenger Public Chat Rooms will close down on December 14, 2012.

Yahoo! Messenger interoperability with Microsoft Windows Live Messenger
Yahoo! Messenger will no longer be interoperable with Microsoft Windows Live Messenger as of December 14, 2012. Microsoft buddies will still appear on your Messenger contact list, but they will be greyed out, and if you try to send instant messages to them, the messages will not be delivered.

I think the gradual wind down with MSN (live) messenger and the chat rooms on Yahoo! messenger is a sign that people are seeing social networks as the way forward.

I have keen memories of both services.
