Yahoo, fresh from the unveiling of a spanking new logo recently, has more good news to bring to the masses. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer did make an announcement at TechCrunch Disrupt that the company she is currently helming have seen its monthly active users increase by 20% to 800 million worldwide, and that would also take into consideration the 350 million monthly active users who are logging in from their mobile devices. According to Mayer, these figures have increased ever since she steadied the ship as CEO in July last year, and to sweeten the report, the statistics do not take into consideration Tumblr, the high traffic site which Yahoo forked out $1 billion for earlier this year.
Mayer did send out an optimistic note of caution, however, that it will take Yahoo approximately 3 or more years to arrive at their intended destination. Between now and then, their focus would be on a quartet of pillars – people, products, traffic, and revenue. This strategy was explained in a manner to kick off a chain reaction that will hopefully, attract great people to build great products, and eventually users and revenue will flow in as part of the natural order. Are you happy to see Yahoo growing as a company?RELATED
