Things are being reshuffled at Yahoo. The Internet Guide for Children was being discarded along with the coupon service deals. The Executive Vice President, Jay Rossiter, said in an announcement on blog that “Today we are shutting down a few more products.”And while this may have been a hard decision to make it will pay off in the future. Such new additions such as Yahoo!Mail for iPad and Android Tablets along with Yahoo!Weather for iPhone will be introduced soon.
The deals will come to a natural finish towards the end of the month and so will the SMS alerts along with the Yahooligans Kids Guide to the Web. There is an atmosphere of excitement and exhilaration at Yahoo. Net-connected smart phones are the wave of the future. June 3rd is the date when the older version of Yahoo!Mail will become unavailable.
The design-conscious chief Marissa Mayer gave Yahoo a complete refurbishing this past February. The advertisements were renovated altogether. So was the news that now caught the attention of traffic on the Yahoo web page. Much of the clutter of the past has been cleared away. And a totally novel clean cut framework has been adopted according to CNN report.
The focal point of Yahoo has shifted too. Now it wants to launch its productive services onto smart phones and tablets. Yahoo has undergone a makeover under the auspices of Marissa Mayer, who wants the brand new Yahoo site to be inspirational and a source of entertainment.
Marissa is definitely a valuable though recent joiner at Yahoo. As the CEO, she has revamped the very beams and rafters of the Big “Y”. She has given a dynamic edge to the search engine, which is among the three largest in the world. Along with Google and Microsoft, Yahoo has been tagging along as a firm and formidable competitor. Mayer has imitated the best of Google and offered exciting phone features. But one decision that she made has not gone well with the employees. That is no more working from home.
There were rumors that this last move would destroy employee job satisfaction. However, Marissa says that this is not so. According to her, it is all for the sake of innovation. The proverbial elephant in the room has been identified by this smart corporate woman of style and substance. She wants everyone at Yahoo to get together in order to be far more creative than before. She agrees that productive efforts increase when people work from home.
Yet according to Marissa, creativity is compromised when people work from home and this is why she has taken the tough decision to ban the practice at Yahoo. Everyone at Yahoo is with her since they too want the company to progress with the changing times.
