Yahoo Groups is a two-decades-old platform and one of the earliest group interaction platforms is now set to get defunct in the month of December 2020. From the recent updates, it has been found that Yahoo is going to shut down all its social media service Yahoo Groups from 15 onwards. Yes, you are hearing correct from yesterday only, all the groups were shut down. People can see everything in it but will not be able to send something. If anyone is interested in downloading the things out then they should mail to Yahoo. After that, they will provide you a confirmation and as soon as confirmation comes you will easily be able to download the things. Hence, this is the only way through which you can keep things forever.
Yahoo Groups team in an email to its users wrote down that the service steady decline in usage over the last several years. Over the same period, we’ve witnessed unprecedented levels of engagement. By the end, there will be some difficult decisions regarding products that no longer fit our long-term strategy. Therefore, the option to create new groups on it has already been disabled on October 12th, 2020. However, the other services of the group related came to an end on October 15th, 2020. But the total shut down will take place in December.
Probing further, Yahoo has suggested the users join sites like Facebook Groups, Google Groups, and Groups.io. They offer paid functions to export members from Yahoo groups. So, if you were a Yahoo user then move forward. And join down the other groups on Facebook, Twitter, etc. today only.
