The BIG news for AC Contributors (now “Yahoo! Contributors”) this past week was the official transition to Yahoo! territory.
All AC content is now housed on the Yahoo! Contributor Network and many Contributors can see which pieces have been published on Yahoo! channels including Shine, OMG!, Yahoo! News and Yahoo! Finance.
Exciting stuff 🙂
The official announcement about the Associated Content and Yahoo! partnership took place early this summer, and Associated Content has undergone several changes since then. The announcement for the launch of the Yahoo! Contributor Network took place on Monday, November 15 and has been covered by several major media and news outlets.
I was interviewed for this piece by USA Today, and several other publishers have also covered the story. Here’s a roundup in case you missed them:
