Yahoo made an announcement that Yahoo answers will be shutting down on the 4th of May. If you created some content on this platform, it’s time screencap them. Before there was Facebook,Instagram,Youtube and reddit, there is Yahoo answers.
During its prime, this site even had guest famous celebrities to ask the questions. There are students who even used this site for homeworks. I have fond memories of this discussion site but at least we have Reddit,Mylot,Forumcoin, and Quora as alternatives once this iconic Q and A social network is gone. I was still using the site last month and the activity dwindled because less people are active. During the prime of this site, I can get 10 answers seconds after I made a questions. I barely get answers the past few years.
Askers usually picks the best answer after three days and I still remember the feeling of Pride whenever I was chosen as best answer. When you are chosen as the best, it means you had been helpful. The competitor on me also get an ego boost because it means I am the best.
The past few years had been a struggle for Yahoo. Yahoo had discontinued their search engine, social groups, chat and messenger. Now I worry for my yahoo email that I has since I was a little kid. The only prominent features yahoo have left are the news and the email service. YA had barely gets activity it use to have and that made it a liability to Yahoo. It is a nostalgic part of my childhood.
To look back to the entertaining trainwreck Yahoo Answers was, here is a trip to the memory lane. These are some viral posts of Yahoo answers that left a mark in Internet Pop Culture.
