Tomahawk, WI 07/03/2014 (Basicsmedia) – Yahoo Shuts Some Of Its Products
Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) has decided to shut down some of its websites and trim some other products which are under performing since quite some time. Yahoo, on priority would be closing Shine, a website based on women’s lifestyle, and a contacts and email management based application Xobni. Adding to the list is Yahoo’s editorial site Yahoo Voices, Yahoo Deals, Yahoo Kids along with the search engine crucially used to explore for the people throughout the web. The main reason for the closure of these products is either they are quite old and obsolete or they are not performing as per the company’s expectations.
Well, Yahoo’s decision of trimming its excessive and non performing products should not surprise the market as it is not the first time the business has taken the decision. Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) has already taken some decisions earlier regarding the elimination of its unwanted products the last year. Moreover the industry has now decided to concentrate on its core business domain of Digital Magazine, Search Engine, Video and Communication.
