Yahoo Answers is shutting down after 16 years. Here’s how users can download old data.
Yahoo Answers, one of the longest-running question-and-answer sites on the internet, is shutting down after 16 years.
The site will shutter on May 4, according to a banner on the top of the Yahoo Answers homepage on Monday. An FAQ page said users won’t be able to post any new questions or answers after April 20.
Previous questions and answers can be viewed on the site until May 4 when they will be redirected to the Yahoo homepage.
Yahoo Answers users can request their old data to download, including previous questions and answers they’ve posted before a June 30 deadline.
