Once the darling of the Internet world, Yahoo has struggled in recent years to find its identity. It named PayPal’s Scott Thompson as CEO earlier this year, just a few months after firing former CEO Carol Bartz. But then it was revealed that Thompson had embellished his college degree; he was ousted, and Marissa Mayer has since taken the helm.
Marissa Mayer became the CEO of the tech company in July, following the resignation of Scott Thompson, who stepped down amid controversy over his resume. Mayer is trying to drive a turnaround at a company that suffered three straight years of sales declines as Google and Facebook did a better job attracting users and advertisers.
