Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) Revamp Gets Facebook Inc. (FB) Help

“This is definitely an important step,” said Sameet Sinha, analyst at B. Riley Caris, about the revamp of the Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) home page and overall site format. “The Yahoo home page is one of the most important things because it is the first interface. It’s familiar in terms of layout, the newsfeed is interesting, and it will be interesting to see how it develops over time. The key will be how data is aggregated within Yahoo and Facebook.”

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) posted $5 billion in revenue in 2012, which is flat compared to a year ago and down from $6.3 billion in 2010.

What do you think about his change? Do you think it will help Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) re-gain some traction in the marketplace? Will imitation of a successful platform elsewhere translate in the Yahoo! model? We’d like your thoughts in the comments section below.
