Yahoo is shutting down Groups website and deleting all content you posted ever

18 October 2019 0

Yahoo Groups, one of the world’s largest collections of online discussion boards will be shut down on October 28. This means starting from Oct 28, you will not be able to upload any new post on it and eventually on December 14, any content you posted on the site in the past will be removed.

Inside its help support page, Yahoo has mentioned every detail that you’d need to know. Apart from the two dates that you need to remember, there are other details as well that you need to know. Yahoo enlists every feature that will go away eventually, including Folders, Photos, Links, Polls, Calendar, Files, e-mail updates, and more.

Yahoo mentions the Yahoo Groups site will continue to exist, however, the public groups will be made private or restricted and anyone wants access will need to request an invite. Admins will still be able to manage various group settings, though with limited functionality. From October 28, Yahoo Groups will stop taking the uploads but you’ll continue to do so via email. Thus it’s recommended to save your content or files right from the site. You can download your data from Privacy Dashboard and Photos and Files can be saved.

Yahoo Groups that got launched in 2001 served as a place internet forum and e-mailing list. It wasn’t necessary to register particularly with the Yahoo account, the website lets you register using any e-mail address.

Yahoo hasn’t explained the reason behind this shutdown but one could imagine this coming. Last year Yahoo also bid adieu to its Messenger service which was used by millions of users thanks to Yahoo Groups.
