Yahoo was founded by Jerry Yang and David Filo in January 1994 and was an early pioneer in the dotcom boom, but was quickly overhauled by Google and others.

Speaking at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Mayer said the 800 million users did not include traffic from Tumblr, the online blog and social media hub that it acquired earlier this year.
