A web video platform is about to come out of Yahoo's office pretty soon and upon its launch in the next couple of months, it will be filled with familiar faces and clips which would be made professionally. From the information we have gotten from 'Recode', Yahoo is planning to do so by poaching some of YouTube's biggest stars.
Some inside sources of the company have revealed that Mayer and her crew will be trying their best to attract customer attention and they will go to any length to ensure they get the right amount of users even if it means offering them incentives such as money. Yahoo is certainly going to capitalize on the fact that YouTube users are currently unhappy because they are not getting enough traffic from this platform and Yahoo on the other hand is going to promise them bigger ad revenues for their videos. Such users will also be given a chance to advertise on Yahoo's much visited home page.
It will be wise to think before switching to the Yahoo video service because this platform will not be available for everyone. In order to avoid junk, the page will only allow famous video creators to post their work and they will be chosen by Yahoo itself.
