, Yahoo had 39.9 million unique visitors in June and
invariably most of the users were young Indians (15 to 25years of age).
Recently, I am observing that yahoo has taken a strategy to promote raunchy and
misleading news items to popularize their website. The news items are
strategically positioned and timed in such a way that the moment one wants to
log in to the mail, he / she has to ‘see’ (and unconsciously read) the luring
news. One such news is given below. India
The propaganda that Yahoo has taken is not only fatal to a young Indian (teenage mind and curiosity) but also to the whole nation. I am not sure about the long term vision of this strategy that global internet giants like Yahoo are taking but definitely it is going to effect the social mindset and moral habit of the largest democracy in the world. The above news “I had sex for money” will lure many teenagers with a perception that ‘having sex for money is cool’ and one can come to the front page of Yahoo just because she was doing it and now twitting too!
