Online publishing giant Yahoo! India is revamping their content team. Two key employees at Yahoo! India put in their papers last week.
Head of Content Ajay Nambiar and Head of Entertainment Niyati Sen Gupta had left Yahoo! India. Earlier Nambiar was with Sify heading Consumer Channels. All employees of Yahoo! India got the news via an email from managing director George Zacharias. Incidentally, Nambiar had joined Yahoo! in August 2006 along with Zacharias.
Yahoo!’s content division was recently in a controversy after a blogger accused the publisher of plagiarising her content on its Malayalam portal. Yahoo!, in turn, put the blame on Webdunia, their content provider for the portal.
While both Yahoo! and Ajay Nambiar insisted that the recent departures had nothing to do with the content controversy, it’s no secret that the headquarters at Santa Clara (California) was seeking to upgrade content from India. In fact, the top brass at Yahoo! – including Nambiar – recently went to the global headquarters to discuss the issue.
