Yahoo Downsizes on People and Products

Yahoo has been on a layoff again, only this time it has affected more than just the people in the company. With the people fired, Yahoo will also have to downsize on its products including Delicious, MyBlogLog, Yahoo Buzz and Alta Vista.

There have been rumours of this downsizing for the last few days. However, slowly Yahoo has been confirming the rumours. The product list downsizing was also was discussed in an all hands meeting after the layoffs.

In a statement, Yahoo communicated

Part of our organizational streamlining involves cutting our investment in underperforming or off-strategy products to put better focus on our core strengths and fund new innovation in the next year and beyond.

We continuously evaluate and prioritize our portfolio of products and services, and do plan to shut down some products in the coming months such as Yahoo! Buzz, our Traffic APIs, and others. We will communicate specific plans when appropriate, it added

Yahoo has been acquiring a few products as part of mergers and acquisition. However, on some of the products it has not been able to work on or better it. Some of these products were added to the list that they are planning to remove support for. Though most of the products in the list were not surprising, Delicious was particularly disappointing for Yahoo users

  10. So I learned how to add a Facebook comment box to my Blogger site (with the help of a code from Facebook social plugins site), but the problem is, the same comments appear for each of my posts. It’s like a feature targeted as a comment box for the entire site, but is shown at every single post, which is stupid! How do you get to have Facebook comment box in Blogger but different comments for each post?.

The authoring is highly persuasive and that is most likely the reason why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily notice a leaps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of how you seem to connect your points that produce the actual final result. For right now I will yield to your point however hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect the dots much better.
