Today Yahoo has announced a fresh new look, which Yahoo’s CEO Marrisa Mayer says is more “intuitive and personal”.
The layout isn’t that different at first glance but is optimized across a variety of mobile devices, alongside newly design apps that make it easy to tap into your Facebook profile to broadcast friends birthdays and other key social information on the customized Yahoo homepage.
According to Mayer, the redesign coming is just one of many changes to Yahoo’s services and will roll out to browsers over the course of the next few days.
The bigger question is whether or not a more “social” approach to Yahoo will be their saving grace or if they will continue to lose relevance in a world that is dominated by bigger players like Bing, Google and Facebook. What do you think?
