Every day, we try to create the best possible My Yahoo! experience for you. Throughout the course of the “beta” phase for the new My Yahoo!, we read your constructive feedback on how to improve the product. Much of your feedback has been related to your ability to control your page. As a result, we are changing and evolving our approach to advertising on My Yahoo!.
Less Intrusive Advertising
If you use the new version, the current advertising unit that you are accustomed to seeing on your page has been removed. We feel that this will enable you to better control the layout of content on your page. As we continue to improve the product, we will be examining alternative ways to find the right balance between advertising and the best possible My Yahoo! user experience.
Retiring the Original My Yahoo!
In addition, we want to let you know that on July 14th we will be retiring the original My Yahoo! and moving everyone into the new version. At that point, access to the original My Yahoo! will no longer be enabled. The new version of My Yahoo! was built for you and similar to our recent advertising change, we will remain committed to improving the product based on your feedback.
If you haven’t had time to explore the new My Yahoo! yet, we invite you to check out these tips we created to help get you started and make this transition as easy as possible for people who are accustomed to the original My Yahoo!.
Enjoy the new space!
