Yahoo slims down, again, trashing Deals, SMS Alerts

Zach Miners | April 22, 2013
Yahoo is giving itself a bit of a makeover. Earlier this week it launched two new mobile apps for email and weather; now it's ditching numerous longstanding products, including Deals and SMS Alerts, in an attempt to sharpen its focus, the company announced Friday.

Mobile, in particular, will be a top priority for Yahoo in 2013, Mayer said earlier this week.

But Yahoo is also looking to improve some of the products it already has. In February, the company rolled out a revamped version of its homepage featuring what the company is calling an "infinite news feed," which continuously scrolls down with a string of stories. The page also employs larger photos and a personalized news feed.

Facebook's recently redesigned News Feed offers some similar features.
