Threat of Entrants
While it is possible for new
entrants it is more likely that
these entrants will be acquired
Yahoo! is dependent on suppliers of news and entertainment while those outlets are not dependent on Yahoo!
If users are considered buyers Yahoo! faces considerable threat from buyers who have ample opportunity to switch to different products or services
Almost every Yahoo! product or service has a substitute with little to no switching costs
While rivalry is extremely high and every entrant has aspirations of being, recent alliances have formed and each new acquisition seems to be a roll of the dice
