Yahoo Logo

  • Yahoo's CEO has more to worry about than how her logo looks. She should be
    worried about the fact that she has her head in the sand while during the past
    week, over a quarter of a million users have left Yahoo faster than rats leaving
    a sinking ship.

    I'm a member of a group where Yahoo users came and made a stand against the
    changes they made to Yahoo Classic Groups, and we won. This time the devastation
    is complete. They have rolled something out called NEO, and imposed it upon
    Group Members without any warning, or having fully tested it. It has made the
    Groups interface unusable for thousands of users.

    The worst part of this NEO change is that the groups themselves haven't been
    Neoized, it's the members at random. So a group can have 2000 members and only
    half see the NEO interface while the others do not. This has rendered the
    Moderators almost powerless to help. Management tools are not working, links
    don't function, even simple things like the homepage picture are next to
    impossible to change.

    Disabled and Elderly people cannot navigate this interface. It does not meet the
    ADA requirements. Groups like cancer support groups or medical groups that are
    set up for obtaining medical information and medicines are unable to communicate
    with their patients, and this is endangering their lives. Educational groups are
    unable to reach their students, and the students unable to get their assignments
    and are losing money. & Freecycle groups are discovering that their private
    information exchange has gone public, revealing addresses, phone #'s etc.

    Despite 38,062 votes against NEO which accumulates by the second, and pleas of
    thousands of users in their Yahoo Feedback Thread, nothing has changed.
