The company moved away from being a search-centric portal and toward a community destination for broadband entertainment content.
With a new management team in place, Lycos also began divesting properties that were not core to its new strategy.

Having been set back by the dot-com bubble burst, Lycos abandoned its own search crawler in late 2001, and started using FAST.
In August 2004, Terra announced that it was selling Lycos to Seoul, South Korea–based Daum Communications Corporation, now Kakao, for .4 million in cash, less than 2% of Terra's initial multibillion-dollar investment.
Degenhart said Lycos was interested in doing away with this hurdle for users, but would not go into specifics.
Lycos Dating Search provides a number of features and parameters to frame and narrow searches.
