To our loyal users of My Yahoo,

Our goal for My Yahoo is to give you a way to organize the web around your diverse set of interests. Your passion for My Yahoo inspires us to work hard to make it better everyday, and we’re just getting started. We’ve seen — and heard — the impassioned response about the revamped My Yahoo. You’ve shared lots of great feedback, and we want you to know we’re doing more than just listening. Here’s an update on your most popular requests:

  • Scoreboard app – Your settings from the classic My Yahoo (like the teams you want to follow) will soon show in the new experience.
  • My Portfolio app (Oct 9, update) – You are now able to see multiple portfolios at once by clicking on the All Portfolios drop down.
  • Location settings for weather and news – Every time you visit My Yahoo, we try to detect your current location and give you local weather and news stories. If you don’t see the right city, you can change your location and save it for quick access. As soon as we have a more permanent solution we’ll make sure to let you know.
  • Theme backgrounds – We offer a wide range of themes to help you make your page more personal. You can change your theme at any time by selecting “Choose Themes” at the top right of your screen. We’ve included a “Classic My” theme for those who prefer the colors of the old version of My Yahoo.

Once these updates happen, we’ll let you know right here in this forum… and we’re not done yet – more improvements are on the way. So keep the feedback coming!

Thanks to each and every one of you.

Sincerely,

The My Yahoo Team

  1. I lost all of the news connected to the stocks in my portfolio. How is this new format better. Hate it. Bring back the old version.

  2. Please bring back the old My Yahoo

    Your new "My Yahoo" doesn't even come near to the old "my Yahoo". If it doesn't change back soon I'll be looking else ware for a new homepage that is much more customizable than this.

    Hey there,

    We appreciate the feedback we’ve receive thus far with regards to the new My Yahoo layout and features.

    We’re continually developing new product concepts to bring great experiences to our users. We’d love to hear more feedback about the design changes you’re seeing. Feel free to continue posting here with any additional feedback.

    Thanks!

  3. Very disappointed. I prefer my old My Yahoo page. Can't get local news or weather to stick. Keeps switching to a city 100s of miles away!

    Also can't see totals for My Portfolios. I don't want to have to click three pages away to find the total value for a portfolio and I'm not as interested in individual stock's movement. Why can't I see a total like my old page had?

  4. What's up with Current Location and why can't you seem to fix it?

    Why are you having so much trouble getting the Current Location feature to work ALL THE TIME. You were doing well for a couple of weeks, but today (1/4/14) I'm back to living in Sunnyvale, CA, where it's a heck of a lot warmer than where I'm actually located. Obviously, the Current Location also impacts my Movie Favorites, too. Please do something to fix it PERMANENTLY, or you're going to continue to lose more and more people to Google.

  5. Bring back the old MY Yahoo!

    Bring it back. There is no option to show your Yahoo Fantasy Sports. The boxes are larger than My Yahoo so you can not fit as much on the screen. Wasted space.

  8. Want my old page back

    I have had the same my yahoo home page for so many years I don't remember when I got it arranged that way. Intro said there was a opt out. There is no opt out. Fix it or I will go to another provider.

  9. "MY Yahoo?!" This is YOUR Yahoo!!

    I expect Machiavellian treatment of users from Microsoft. But to tell users about a "new Yahoo" and cover the visual with a huge dialog box that makes it impossible to examine the "new Yahoo" without selecting the 'yes' button - and then locking the user into the new version instantly. Well. I'm in awe of how low Yahoo has sunk.
    It wouldn't be so bad if the new version was better. But it stinks. So there goes My Yahoo as the home page on all of my devices. Congrats, guys - another Google win!!

  10. Why not just let us go back to our old homepages?

    Why can we not go back to our old homepages? Everything you claim to have done to correct the "new" Yahoo is not true. I still get only the scores that you decide to give me on the scoreboard, none of my favorites either sports or teams show up. I know that whoever designed this page is deeply invested in it and thinks it is great, but it is NOT. I can only assume from the lack of response to all of the complaints, that Yahoo truly does not care about the users and is not concerned when people go…

  11. This is really bad. You leave me no choice. I'm getting a new home page. Goodbye.

    This new design is horrible. Reminds me of the brilliant "Windows 8" mess. Since I can't go back to my old design, I have no choice but to use some other homepage. Hope your advertisers like the exodus.

  13. How can I get back to the old My Yahoo Page - there was more functionality on the old page

    Under the portfolio there used to be a total so you could monitor your investments directly on the page. The refresh button for portfolios is also missing. I have been a yahoo users for at least 15 years and would like to have the option of going back to the prior version of My Yahoo

  17. Yahoo are you listening to your most loyal customers?

    Please give me back my "my yahoo" I no longer can zoom with my IOS devices and overall I see no value add to your new site. I have even went to the extreme to set up a netvibe site. I company in your condition can not afford to **** off its most loyal followers!

  20. I hate the new my yahoo page

    I hate the new my yahoo page I have lost my personal scoreboard with just my teams, I prefer the AP News feed over yahoo's I liked we had more control over our content on the page what you people have done was take a good thing & are destroying it and the changes are a freaking joke. STOP CHANGING THINGS WITHOUT INPUT FROM THE USERS OF THE SITE IT'S ABSOLUTELY INSANE ON YOUR PART
