Wale, you are right. Banker would probably not want this company which is losing the marketshare itself.

Google has already burned its fingers in social networking domain. The main problem for any company trying to break into the social networking domain is to bring something innovative to the table to woo people. 

One field which will comeup is online entertainment. Right now people are connected via social network but there are not enough online entertainment sites. There are apps to download on mobile but we need more.

I think Yahoo should now try to breack into the social networking market. Any suggestion about the social networking company they might want/need to acquire?

With Yahoo having close to 7 billion in cash and no long term debts, do you think it's a good idea to try and seek out a purchase? They obviously need to do something rather quickly and it should be an unexpected move, but if they guess wrong they could sink the ship for good.

@t.alex do you think investment bank or bankers would take the risk? Just from technical innovation point of view, has Yahoo really dig deep into any new thing? If there's please educate me. What a costly rejection of an offer! Its board should have accepted Microsoft offer at over $44b and half just years back.

For all of its problems, "zero long-term debts and, as at the end of the September quarter... more than $7 billion in cash and short- and long-term investments." are certainly strengths that Yahoo could build on.

Anna,

The fact that Facebook's ramping more users, that's apparently impacting on all others within the circle of web-socialising scene. This is clear distinction of strenght indepth of individual internet technology firm operating in this area. Could you predict success of facebook in search engine should it try to? And that same goes to Google with Google+.

Nevertheless, Yahoo!'s search engine can hardly match Google. If online news and video streaming worthwhile consider as main focus for Yahoo. I think, acquiring Yahoo for those only 2 reasons may not be bad as such. What do you think?

@Wale, I don't think it'll be a smart move. Considering the two companies are struggling in the social networking arena to compete with rival companies. It won't work - I think.
