Yahoo is a portal site….always has been, and still is…but becomes less relevant now social media comes around!
What’s next….Yahoo announced Livestand, Yahoo 2.0 developed for the mobile tablet (and for sure for iPad, but probably also on Android, Honeycomb, and other operating systems in the near future). It looks like a digital magazine filled with Yahoo and tirth party content. Although you will download it as an app, it’s not ment to be an app it’s ment to a platform to use. Trough this platform Yahoo hopes to attract magazines who will sell advertising space and get subscriptions through Livestand.
Let see how Apple will react to this new business model….again they change the model to attract new revenue.
In the flat eductation section, I mention the fact that business modelling is so important when looking at the flat world business….the way you do your business now will not be the way to do business in the flat world. Be prepared to change your business model….any help on this can be found in the business model section.
