Yahoo bought GeoCities last week for an estimated $3.6 billion (#2.2 billion) in stock, in a move that will see two of the Web's largest players joining up.
Yahoo is a portal site supplier, while GeoCities is the most popular of the Web's community sites. GeoCities enables users to create their own free homepages - a feature that is likely to appear on Yahoo.com soon.
The merger will result in a Web firm with a huge user base. At least 33 million people visited the sites in November 1998, according to market research firm Media Metrix.
This compares to 38 million visitors in the same month for AOL and Netscape combined.
