     Founder of Yahoo! 

Yahoo! is a web services provider headquartered in Sunnyvale, California and owned by Verizon Communications through Oath Inc.

It was globally known for its Web portal, Yahoo search engine advertising, online mapping, video sharing, fantasy sports, and its social media website. According to third-party web analytics providers Alexa and SimilarWeb, Yahoo! was the most widely read news and media website – with over 7 billion views per month – ranking as the sixth-most-visited website globally in 2016.

Once the most popular website in the U.S., Yahoo slowly declined, starting in the late 2000s, and in 2017 Verizon Communications acquired most of Yahoo's Internet business for $4.48 billion, excluding its stakes in Alibaba Group and Yahoo! Japan, which were transferred to Yahoo's successor company Altaba.
