Verizon Communications will create a new company called Oath after it completes its .5bn acquisition of Yahoo and melds the troubled internet company with its AOL operations.
Oath will oversee Yahoo and AOL after the deal is completed.
There has been increasing interest in the ability of the internet to produce behaviour change.
The focus of this study was to describe program exposure across three intervention groups from a randomised trial (RT) comparing traditional face-to-face, internet-mediated (combined internet plus face-to-face), and internet-only program delivery.
The security breakdown marked the two biggest breaches in internet history, raising concerns that people might start using Yahoo less frequently and reduce the opportunities to show ads.
Tim Armstrong, AOL's CEO, is expected to run Oath while Yahoo's CEO Marissa Mayer will not be part of the new venture, Recode reported.
Neither AOL nor Yahoo commented on what her severance might entail.

A mid-March announcement that Thomas Mc Inerney would lead the business after the sale could trigger the multi-million dollar severance package for her, contingent on the sale and her being fired without cause.
