Yahoo Answers had created a culture in the internet world. This service finally says goodbye to this world after 21 years of service. The company announced that the platform will be shut down completely on May 4, 2021.
When you search for any question from the most absurd to the most logical on the internet; you must have seen some Yahoo Answers pages. This platform was founded in 2005 and is an important part of the internet culture. But this culture is now coming to an end, with the decision announced today.
According to the announcement on the home page of Yahoo Answers; the platform will bid farewell to the internet world on May 4, 2021. All users who want to ask any question on the platform will be able to send any question they want until April 20. The entire statement shared by the platform and upsetting many internet users is as follows:
Statement by Yahoo:
“While Yahoo Answers was once an essential part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less popular over the years as our members’ needs have changed. That’s why we’ve decided to move our resources away from Yahoo Answers to focus on products that serve our members better and fulfill Yahoo’s promise to deliver top-notch trusted content.“
“As of April 20th, you will no longer be able to post new questions or answers. However, you will be able to view questions and answers posted until May 4th. The site will be closed on May 4th. If you would like to download a copy of your questions and responses, you can do so by signing in to your Privacy dashboard and requesting a download.“
Although Yahoo Answers has served as a useful platform for years, internet users started to use it as a humor factory after a while. Stupid questions from each other spread on the internet, and they were asked to ask each other stupid questions for joke purposes. Still, Yahoo’s departure made everyone upset.
