“Your content must be requested before June 30, 2021,” Yahoo says.

“We launched Yahoo Answers sixteen years ago to help people around the world connect and share information,” begins Yahoo’s message. “With you and millions of other users, we built the best place on the web to ask and answer questions on a variety of topics, creating a community of global knowledge sharing. While we could not have been prouder of what we accomplished together, we are reaching out today to let you know that we have decided to shut down it on May 4th, 2021. While it was once a key part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as the needs of our members have changed. “To that end, we have decided to shift our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that better serve our members and deliver on Yahoo’s promise of providing premium trusted content.”

Though most of the users will not be affected by Yahoo’s decision, the company still wants feedback from users regarding this decision.  Users can share their feedback on [email protected].
