Yahoo Answers is one of the oldest web Question and Answer platforms of bad questions and providing even worst answers to the questions. This platform was opened in the year 2005 and has provided lots of answers for the general internet. But now the platinum is shutting down on the 4th of May 2021.
If you have been very active on the Yahoo Answers platform and have lots of data there you have until June 30th to request a copy of your data before everything is wiped away. Once Yahoo answers have shut down uses will be directed to the Yahoo homepage.
