    Mostly low value low growth products and redundancies. Unclear how international was affected. Been thru lots of layoffs from Yahoo, this was more fat trimming and restructuting to goals than cost cutting to maximize profits

      I find this funny: "unclear how international was affected" followed by some statement as if you have a deep understanding of what happened.

      Man, dudes and their need to state their opinion as fact... it gives me life.

    Honestly I knew this was coming since the acquisition, there’s redundancy and it’s a known occurrence during this type of thing. Cutting the fat that is

      This was not the first round of layoffs after the acquisition of Yahoo. There have been layoffs before. I predict there will be more in the future, though the Oath/Verizon Media CEO said he set the books straight for the future.
