Yahoo OneConnect

Day late and a dollar short!! Just one day (maybe even hours) after I highlighted a $15Billion opportunity to own mobile - Yahoo introduces Yahoo One Connect at the Barcelona Mobile show:

Congratulations to Marco Boerries, and his team!!


In my earlier post, I referenced why others already in that space would fail. Kudos to Yahoo's OneConnect product managers - It's like they read my mind. Yahoo will succeed - here's why;

1) Support multiple (and most) of the popular social networks, not just Yahoo properties.

2) Work "Off Deck", so I do not have to use a particular wireless carrier that they chose to partner with.

3) Work with OTHER Instant messaging products, not just Yahoo's.
