Marissa Mayer who recently last year stepped in as CEO has made the decision to get rid of some of yahoo users favorite features. Yahoo Messenger, Clue, Avatars, Sports IQ are just a few products that will no longer be featured, or no longer supported and updated by Yahoo.
Mayer has hand in the redesign of Yahoo’s home page and the new email style as well. In more surprising news is the new policy being placed by Mayer in reference to Yahoo employees. No longer will employees be able to work from home which was information leaked in late February. Yahoo is not alone in this move but company such as Bank of America have implemented the policy.
