Yahoo Lays Off Flickr Customer Service Team, Reportedly 12% Of Entire Staff
When Flickr Product Chief Markus Spiering wrote a couple weeks ago about things that were being discarded as part of a “New Year’s cleaning,” there was no mention it would include the site’s core customer service team. But at least some, if not all of that team, was given pink slips on Monday — and, according to some tweets, it happened without a word of warning or explanation.
A Yahoo spokesperson tonight said “no comment” in response to our requests for information about the Flickr layoffs.
