“Although Yahoo Answers has been an important part of Yahoo’s products and services, it has become less and less popular over the years as our members’ needs have changed. Therefore, we decided to withdraw our resources from Yahoo Answers and focus on products that can better serve our members and offer Yahoo’s promise to provide reliable premium content,” can be read in the Yahoo statement shared by Engadget.
Yahoo Answers was launched in 2005 and remains one of the oldest question and answer platforms on the Internet.
