Yahoo Wants $500,000 From Advertisers For Its Flipboard Killer

Livestand 4x3

Just like AOL, Yahoo is asking advertisers for big bucks to be a sponsor of its Flipboard-like reading app, Livestand.

Yahoo wants $500,000 to be the launch sponsor, AdAge reports. That sponsorship would run though the end of the first quarter of 2012.

Livestand launches tomorrow, so advertisers could be getting a better rate on Livestand than on AOL Editions which is asking for $150,000 for four weeks of sponsorship.

But with Editions, advertisers are getting an audience of 100,000 downloads, and a top 10 iPad news app. Livestand could be a total dud.
