Your very own commitment to getting the message around had become extraordinarily beneficial and have in most cases helped women like me to get to their ambitions. Your own invaluable instruction signifies much to me and substantially more to my fellow workers. Many thanks; from all of us.

Wooed by Yahoo in 2012, Mayer became the youngest female CEO of her time There’s one thing about Marissa Mayer that everyone agrees to: she is among the smartest people you could meet. Mayer went to STANFORD UNIVERSITY only after scrutinizing the PROS AND CONS of 10 colleges that she had been accepted at. http://www.bidnessetc.com/business/maris sa-mayer-one-of-silicon-valleys-most-pow erful-women/

I am not happy with Marissa Mayer as CEO of Yahoo. Even though my Classic Yahoo Mail was converted in June, I have been using the basic version of the new Yahoo Mail since. There have been small changes since June. Some of the changes are kind of good, while others make now sense at all.

While I still have some photos posted on Flickr, I can no longer use it the way I used to. I no longer feel as though I am visiting a gallery as I did before the May 20, 2013 change.

A lot of users do not like the new Groups format. I’m one of them. I can no longer use Groups the way I did before the change. There is a big difference between being functional and being usable. For me and many others Groups are no longer usable.

Did Marissa Mayer actually poll her users before authorizing these changes? It doesn’t seem like it.

Obviously, Mr. Salmon, you are unfamiliar with Yahoo! Groups. Group owners and members are leaving in droves and searching for new hosting sites because Mayer’s changes are nothing more than a glorified version of Facebook, something that does not fulfill the requirements of most Yahoo! groups. Let’s face it, if these groups felt a Facebook-type format served their needs, they would have simply created a Facebook page. They chose Yahoo! because it was different. Mayer is, in effect, doing to Yahoo! Groups, what she did to Flickr, rendered it virtually unusable.

Additionally, every time Mayer opens her mouth, she inserts her foot. What sort of CEO of a major company would say, “There’s no such thing as professional photographers anymore”? Or promise not to “screw up” Tumblr?

And speaking of Tumblr, Mayer paid $1.1 billion for a company the SEC valued at less than $200 million. Then, she paid David Karp another $81 million to continue in his position for four years. If Karp is allowed to operate Tumblr his way, it might survive for four years, but once he’s gone, Yahoo! WILL “screw up” the company — provided there is a Yahoo! four years from now. This is a given because Yahoo! screws up everything it touches.

Yahoo! Groups was one of the company’s biggest money-makers because of the advertising. However, Yahoo! misleads advertisers regarding the number of people reached by advertising on its site. For example, many of the groups in Yahoo! Groups have been inactive for years, yet Yahoo! NEVER purges these groups because the more groups it can claim, the better when it comes to selling to advertisers, even if a significant proportion of these groups are dead as door nails! Most Yahoo! group owners that are leaving Yahoo! aren’t deleting their groups, but keeping them for archival or reference purposes, but Yahoo! will NEVER admit this to advertisers. Companies/organizations advertising, or planning to advertise, on Yahoo! Groups need to do some serious due diligence and find out for themselves if all those groups Yahoo! is claiming are, indeed, active, and if active, how active.

Yahoo! is an aging, incompetent dinosaur that destroys everything it touches from email, to Flickr, to Yahoo! Groups and it’s just a matter of time before it destroys itself!

Just because Yahoo’s revenues are largely from certain types of ads *now* does not mean that revenue source is sustainable 3, 5, or 10 yrs out. Look at newspapers, for example.

What Levinsohn wanted to do was optimize the best revenue sources Yahoo has *today*. That would have focused the company and improved the bottom line short-term, but what would the company have done when that well dried up? And it is drying up (see Aol).

You need innovation for long-term success, and Levinsohn’s plan was not innovative. You need great products *first* to get the users who will drive revenue now & into the future (see Google Search).

I applaud the attempt at a fresh perspective, but what this article offers is a perspective from a limited understanding of how innovation & long-term growth happen in the first place.

They’ve managed to copy the look of Facebook with none of Facebook’s functionality AND also completely destroy and/or cripple the functionality of Yahoo Groups.

Groups is/are admittedly populated by mostly less technologically adept folks (middle aged sorts like me), but there is a LOT of them. A lot. And Yahoo’s doing a damn fine job of chasing their eyeballs away. They don’t want a Facebook-style interface or functionality. They’re comfortable with old fashioned email and have relied on Yahoo Groups to provide that. And now Yahoo’s made a royal massive mess out of it. I’m more tech savvy and could figure it out…if it worked. But it doesn’t. Marissa’s not helping.
