Yahoo to shut down most of its digital magazines

Yahoo has announced that nearly all of their digital magazines will be shut down soon, including Yahoo Food, Health, Parenting, Makers, Travel, Tech, Autos and Real Estate.
The company had put millions into building their media division in the past few years, but they failed just like all of Yahoo's attempts at a turnaround.

Moving forward, only News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle, the company's four most popular verticals, will remain active. Popular writers, including former New York Times' writer David Pogue, will move from their magazines to 'News.'

Yahoo's general popularity has fallen, as daily active user visits to the homepage have fallen 16.5 percent year-over-year and time spent on the site has fallen significantly, as well.

I can tell you why Yahoo fails, in my opinion anyway. Their front page is full of Trashy news feeds. Like those Trashy magazines that home in on what a celebrity brushes their teeth with etc etc.. it's total mindless crap. What really annoys me is those adverts that say 'computer companies don't want you to this' trying to get you to click on it and then find out it's a load of S***. They need to smarten up, look professional, focus on news that matters! not trash! I'm so tired of it.
