Heiko Genzlinger, Managing Director and Vice President of Sales, in Germany, has been a committed Yahoo Mail and Flickr user for many years now. We caught up with Heiko to chat more about his favorite Yahoo products and how they’re part of his daily habits.
Tell us about your Yahoo Daily Habit.
I use Yahoo! Mail on a daily basis to email with my family and friends. I use Flickr to save and share pictures. And of course Yahoo! Messenger, which is a fun and easy way to communicate with my colleagues.
How has your daily habit become a personal experience for you?
Logging in to Yahoo Mail on my phone is one of the first things I do in the morning – normally before I arrive in the office. I recently became a proud daddy, so it’s even more fun to share photos and news about my daughter via Mail or Flickr. The fantastic thing about Flickr is that you can determine who can see your pics.
How have your habits influenced your life?
Communicating, chatting and sharing are essential parts of my daily digital life. Whether it’s Yahoo Mail, Messenger or Flickr, our products make my life easier. Since I always have my phone on me, I take more and more photos of daily situations and impressions and share them with friends and family via Flickr. My baby Helena was born three months ago, and Grandma and Grandpa are located 300 miles away, but they can still participate with photos and short videos every day.
Is there anything that you're especially excited about?I’m very excited about what comes next in terms of innovations for mobile devices. Mobile is an essential part of Yahoo!’s future growth.
