From the glorious to opportunities

Yahoo in as the gateway website had a brilliant time, while yahoo once is the most visited site users. But, just as other companies have Internet industry into social networking and mobile equipment etc, yahoo failed to catch, finally only to today's difficulties situation.

Yahoo's so pain finally revealed on Tuesday to come, in yahoo's board announced on Tuesday, suddenly fired chief executive officer of the company, carol buzz. Buzz has been key to promote yahoo online media and original news business, but ignored the development of new social networking tools, video services and mobile machine application to the attention of the business, and that is more like the service users use, and the result is, yahoo's defeat is not only the important problems in management, and more vivid description of yahoo issued in professional content sites from mobile phones and mobile network leading to the new digital world transformation process is also very failure. In such a new field, the user is the original content.

Yahoo's problems and another was in the Internet industry has a popular forerunner of similar, that is America online (AOL). The two companies have agile use of the user change to the way the great opportunity-reading from the traditional to the network news newspaper important transition opportunities, but in the Internet users and advertisers to mobile phones and social network in transition, but have not effectively capture these opportunities. The two companies have to become a media company. At the same time, a new generation of companies, such as Google and Facebook, etc are able to take advantage of these opportunities, meet the user's information and entertainment request, they are no longer provide content, but create mobile and social networking services to attract users and those big advertisers.

Yahoo display advertising advantage lack innovation loss

But, with the flow of yahoo, Google and Facebook is missing the popularity of the growing, and the user is spent on yahoo on time only about half the on on Facebook.

Advertising users often tend to make them much more profitable to the object, such as intelligence, video web site users of mobile phones and social networking users, and those who can produce the company to its appeal. Yahoo in once in advertisement market is in extremely important leading position, it was important that the product is the advertising, this kind of advertising can display image and video, but Facebook and Google are thus, and gradually catch up with yahoo, its very important reason is because Facebook and Google can for advertisers provide more information about users and related personal information.

But, even if the Internet users began to change the way web surfing, began to use different ways, such as web surfing in different web sites and equipment reading news and content, such as yahoo and aol, the progress was very lags behind, as they are still in in the 1990 s, the golden age of creating some content that.
