The company justifies that the platform, which is one of the oldest question and answer services on the internet, has lost popularity in recent years
Yahoo Answers, one of the oldest question and answer services on the internet, will end its activities permanently on Tuesday, 4. The deadline had already been stipulated by the company in early April, and since the 20th platform does not accept new questions and is only working with old content. As of Wednesday, 5, whoever accesses the portal will be directed to the Yahoo main page. However, until June 30 it is possible to request a backup of your questions. After that, the content will be lost forever. Yahoo says it decided to take the site down because it would have lost popularity recently and the company plans to divert resources to other products that better serve its audience. However, Yahoo Answers was also raising concerns about disinformation, as any user could answer someone else’s questions without citing truthful sources.
