Why Yahoo faded: The Internet changed, but it didn’t

The arrival of search, social networks and mobile devices transformed the way we use the Internet too rapidly for the online pioneer to keep pace.

I was one of the early adopters who embraced Yahoo as my main email service back in 1998 and who set up a custom My Yahoo page (remember those?) so all of the pertinent weather reports, stock quotes and headlines were at my fingertips.

Seventeen years later, Yahoo isn’t even on my list of sites to check in on. There’s my (non-Yahoo) email, and Facebook, of course, as well as a handful of news sites. The idea of an all-encompassing portal just doesn’t appeal to me anymore.
