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 hate Yahoo and after ten years or more with Yahoo, I am finding another mail service. You just changed My Yahoo into Your Yahoo, took all

    I have had My Yahoo for a very long time, with news services of my choice. It is no longer My Yahoo. Today I open My Yahoo and found this little kid, childish brainless My Yahoo as my main page which is really Yahoo's My Yahoo and I am leaving> There are better mail services now. If you want my idea, give me back My Yahoo, an adult Yahoo

  2. Your new home page and weather illustrates that you get easily hijacked by "creative web designers who have no sense of customer usability.

    Your new MY YAHOO Home Page is horrible. You have been bamboozled by your overly "creative" web design team, who obviously could care less about readability, usability, and maintaining your high use customers. This is, without a doubt, the worst decision Yahoo has made in many, many years. Fix it while you can. Remember "the new Coke" and The Edsel"? Well, Yahoo is trying to get itself into the Business school "mistakes" hall of fame. You are changing the essence of what you were; an easy to read, informative portal to the internet. With this design, you have destroyed that…

  3. WHAT IS THIS MAIN TAB ****? YAHOO SPIRALING DOWN THE TOILET.

    YAHOO HAS BECOME THE WORST LOOKING BROWSER YET. WHAT USED TO BE THE BEST AVAILABLE IS NOW BOTTOM FEEDER GARBAGE. I'M GOING ELSEWHERE FOR A HOMEPAGE, AND MY COMPANY DEFAULT WILL BE CHANGING THIS WEEK.

  5. My Main Tab

    Why did I HAVE to lose my "home page?" I was quite happy with the clarity of it and the way I had it **** out! I do not like having something suddenly 'dropped' on me and with NO choice to stay with what I've had for years and am comfortable using. It's hard for an old dog to learn new tricks!! And, I'm not looking forward to it.

  8. The new layout SUCKS!

    Stop changing what works. Guess I'll be searching for a new homepage now because I can't stand the new look of Yahoo. Thanks for screwing up the only thing you had going for you.

  9. Sent ideas. Sent complaints. Tired of ********. Just keeps getting worse. No more Yahoo - Google, here I come...

    New problem - after entering a search string, I press ENTER and...voila'...NOTHING happens. Yahoo is slow, buggy, and irrelevant. I've been a loyal user for over a decade. Deleting my yahoo address and changing default page, now. Don't bother replying - nobody's home.

    Ditto....I am SO frustrated at losing my "personalization"! .... not to mention the changes in email! This Sr. Citizen was QUITE happy b4! With all the technology these days, it seems that change should be optional.

  14. Please tell Marissa Mayer to change us all back to our old format.

    Ms. Mayer, you want to make your mark as the new CEO. Your first anniversary and you want to change the format of My Yahoo, after we have everything set up the way we want. That is not being user-friendly. What is the real reason you changed everything up? It surely is not to make things easier for existing customers, because we are all unhappy with opening up our computers and finding out that we have to waste our valuable time trying to reset the whole stupid thing back to the way we want. You cannot go back to the…

  17. I want my yahoo page back!

    I have been with yahoo as my home page since the beginning of the Internet, more or less and today I was horrified to see my carefully arranged page gone and this new thing in it's place. Like all the others who are upset with this, I will give you 1 week to return my page or i switch to Google for email, homepage, search, etc.
    You ruined Flickr, please don't ruin my home page!!!
