Mahalo Chops Headcount, Says Report
MARCH 2, 2011
Santa Monica-based Mahalo , the online human-curated news and search site headed by Jason Calacanis, has cut 10 percent of its staff, according to reports. Citing an email sent to Mahalo's "Guides", who develop content for Mahalo, the report said that, so far, the Google changes have led to a "significant dip" in traffic and revenues. The move also includes a suspension of Mahalo's Guides program, which solicited content from freelancers.
