Yahoo is now Shutting down Yahoo Groups

Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo Groups on October 21st, 2019. Although not used much now, groups once served as a place for discussion on interests, such as TV shows and computing topics. You can still find groups with thousands of members, and some groups have been active as recently as this year.

In a support document, Yahoo says that it will be deleting all content that has been posted to Yahoo Groups, effective December 14th. However, you won’t be able to upload new content to your groups starting this Monday, October 21st. Here’s the list of content Yahoo will be removing:

  • Files
  • Polls
  • Links
  • Photos
  • Folders
  • Calendar
  • Database
  • Attachments
  • Conversations
  • Email Updates
  • Message Digest
  • Message History

If you want to save content from a group before it is removed, Yahoo says you can download your files directly from your group’s page, or by going to Verizon Media’s Privacy Dashboard page, signing into your Yahoo account, and requesting your group’s data. Yahoo will also mail you when your data is ready for download.
