Yahoo had been one of the most popular emails clients at once, is now shutting down its services one by one. Now, a new report suggests that Yahoo’s longest-standing feature called Groups website is going to be closed down in a two-phase process.
According to a recent blog quote from Yahoo, the company will restrict users to post new content on 21 October and all “previously posted” material will be deleted on 14 December.
Users will be able to connect to other groups via email but effectively the site will be shut down. The groups that exist will be made private and would require the approval of an administrator.
Meanwhile, users who have some data can preserve their data. If you have some, you can download this data directly from your posts or use Yahoo’s Privacy Dashboard.
Launched back in 2001, Yahoo Groups had become a home for specialist communities until the social media boom happened and everyone quickly forgot about it.
Well overall, Yahoo’s group is closing now. Even though, if you really want to be able to post to your groups again, Yahoo says it’s listening to feedback.
