Yesterday, Yahoo announced the surprising news that they had hired ex-Googler Marissa Mayer as their next President and CEO. Mayer, who was Google’s 20th employee, first female engineer, and youngest executive, had recently been leading Google’s local team.

It was surprising in that both parties involved did a great job a keeping everything under wraps, and many felt that Yahoo’s interim CEO Ross Levinsohn would eventually get the job.

Today is Mayer’s first day on the job at Yahoo, and she already has a request from the internet.

A Twitter campaign is building that tags #dearmarissamayer. Attached is the new site, which displays one simple request:

As you remember, Yahoo acquired photo-sharing site Flickr back in 2005.

Mayer will have her hands full with more than Yahoo come October. Today, we learned that along with the big career move, Mayer is also pregnant with her first child, a boy.
