NEW YORK (AP) — Yahoo will close its maps page, and several other sites, as it focuses on its search business, communication tools and content.

 

The Internet company said Friday that it will close its map, which gives users driving directions and traffic conditions, at the end of the month.

Yahoo will also close several sites worldwide, including Yahoo Music in Canada and France, Yahoo Movies in Spain and Yahoo Autos in the U.K. Yahoo’s main Philippines page will also close, and users will be sent to Yahoo Singapore instead.
