Facebook Inc (FB), Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO): Sheryl Sandberg and Marissa Mayer Know Who’s the Boss

Anybody who has followed Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) in recent years has seen an operation that has never quite settled on a coherent strategy for long. Executives have come and gone, sometimes amid great public scrutiny. This has further weakened Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO)’s image, especially on Wall Street, where the stock pickers look more intently for reasons to dislike a stock than for those to approve of it.

The executives and staffers should welcome Mayer’s tough talk — if a polite but firm request to work in your office should even count as “tough talk.”

Only in Silicon Valley, right?
