Yahoo is shutting down its Groups website and deleting all content

Yahoo is shutting down its Groups website and deleting all content”

A piece of internet history is being consigned to the rubbish heap. In this case, it's Yahoo Groups, an online discussion board that made its debut more than 15 years ago. It allowed Yahoo users to create and join groups, and post content to these groups directly using a web browser or by using email. Basically, you will no longer be able to upload new content after October 28 and you will lose any content that you didn't save after December 14. In making the announcement, Yahoo lists exactly what will be removed: Files, Polls, Links, Photos, Folders, Calendar, Database, Attachments, Conversations, Email Updates, Message Digest, and Message History.

There are no plans to archive content, so you'll have to manually save anything you want to keep.

While Yahoo said in a statement that the Yahoo Groups site will continue to exist, users will no longer be able to upload any new content to the site as of October 21, and from December 14, all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed.

Yahoo notes that Yahoo Groups will continue to exist but that all public groups will be set to private or restricted. Users will be able to connect to other groups via email but effectively the site will be shut down. Admins will still be able to manage different group settings, but some functions will be limited.

Each group is isolated into its own little cluster where users can view the group's important details, such as language, the date it was founded, how many members are participating, and related websites. Beyond that, users should visit the Privacy Dashboard in their Yahoo account to view and save their data.
