Yahoo!’s search has been steadily on the decline for years, and it seems that currently their only successful products are Yahoo! Answers and photo sharing site Flickr. Speaking of Flickr, 2 years after Flickr was acquired by Yahoo! they changed the logo adding a “from Yahoo!” subscript on it’s right hand side; causing a backlash from users.
But if there ever was a bad time for negative publicity, this is it.
Off the back of this week’s announcement that Google is rewarding all of their employees with a bonus and 10% pay rise, today news breaks that Yahoo! is rumoured to lay of over 20% of their employees.
