  1. Please give your readers more options in customizing the news feed.

    I would like to get rid of the "Celebrity" topic but there is no way to do it. Right now you give people "See less from" option regarding the source but not the theme.

  3. you are lumping UK news with US news. Not interested in local UK news, and I am sure vice versa. Please give me an option to op out.

    You are lumping UK news with US news. Not interested in local UK news, and I am sure vice versa. Please give me an option to op out. I am English speaking, but that does not automatically mean I want all English speaking countries as my news source. I want ability to pick and choose in my profile.

  4. I live in the US and do't like seeing every other story about the UK.

  5. Stop with so much UK news and the Royals. Who cares about them.

    I doubt most yahoo news readers dwell on the UK and Royal news. Same for Kardashians. Do those celebrities have lots of Yahoo stock?

  6. DATA and SCIENCE comparing INFLUENZA and COVID 19

    Wed, Mar 18 at 10:42 AM
    This Doctor is telling you you have the panic pandemic not the reality based influenza normal threat that is much more totally important.

    Any death and sickness is too much. But what should the USA prioritize?

    See Johns Hopkins web sites.

    C19 world cases: 207,000. Deaths 8,000 = 3.8% of diagnosed cases. Data is of poor quality confounded by testing rates, selection of tested subjects etc. Not good science guys.

    Numbers of undiagnosed & mild infections, just like influenza, presenting as a sniffle or common cold or URI. There is no such thing as…

  7. You have to remove the comments sections

    You have to remove the comments sections - they are the most toxic, dangerous places I have ever seen. Please stop allowing comments on articles. You are providing a platform for hate and allowing the proliferation and propagation of hate speech.

  9. How about making the comments and responses section available...

    Every other news or feature site has a comments and response section available to readers at the end of the article...can't seem to access one on Yahoo News...

  10. This feedback site is ignored - I can't even vote for previous comments

    So there are bad things that yahoo news does. I try to leave a comment, I see many comments already. I try to vote for them, it says voting is closed. So Yahoo just ignores comments and closed those it doesn't like.
    I've read Yahoo for years, apparently time to stop.

  13. Stop jamming videos down out throats. I want to read a story not watch it.

    If you must include a video start it as paused and don't make it follow me down the screen as I try to read a story. Today I found a video that couldn't be paused and every time I closed it the video came back.

  14. New format is forcing users away

    I'll be switching to a new source of years after over a decade reading it on yahoo. I have dealt with many format changes but this one is the worst of many bad ideas that have hindered the user experience over the years.


    • No longer a way to see a list of top stories. Instead you get 4-5 stories under each category, forcing you to check each category individually rather than a ready list of top stories from each being presented.

    • New design is not for readers. The new design is a picture book of huge pictures and (sometimes misleading)…

  18. Thumbs down

    Require responses for thumbs down comments. Or do not allow them. The nearly absolute majority of thumbs down for any comment go without any clarification. This does nothing to inform or enlighten.

  20. Funnel Layout

    Get rid of it. The previous layout provided more features/articles at once while this one starts mildly strong then quickly reduces to a funnel with a pre-arranged string of articles hand picked for a particular outcome.
