It has recently come to my attention that the managed decline of Yahoo is set to continue with the binning of another of the parts of their website I’ve most frequently used over the years.
This time it is the Yahoo Groups feature.
Web service provider Yahoo is to close its ill-fated social media platform, Yahoo Groups, in the coming weeks, as it has seen “a steady decline in usage” over the last several years.
Its closure means that users will no longer be able send or receive messages from their group members.
“Thank you for helping us build one of the earliest digital communities – we’re proud and honoured to have forged countless connections over the last 20 years and played a small part in helping build your communities,” a statement from Yahoo said.
I’m still on the backfoot after they previously canned Yahoo Messenger service.
Apparently you can read more about the latest installment of their managed decline here.
Don’t forget there is a messageboard chat forum here on AlltheInterweb Blogs that you can use to talk about a variety of topics like you’ll no longer be able to with Yahoo.
