Will Yahoo Groups Survive?!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've heard Yahoo is getting rid of things like Food, Travel, and others, will Yahoo Groups survive? I've been here since 2007 and I don't want to leave and I don't want Yahoo Groups to disappear.
If you do get rid of it please give us at least 6 months notice, it'll take that long to figure out how to get my charity board's archives from the last decade moved.
My guess is that Yahoo groups will survive since so many people use it. Yahoo needs to be more responsive to user feedback. If Yahoo is sold one can be fairly certain that they will keep it.
Yahoo management has made reassuring comments on Twitter about groups. Please let Yahoo! know how much groups mean to you. It's easy for people to chime in when they are unhappy - but now would be a good time to give the folks at Yahoo! positive feedback about how important groups are to us: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/12500241-yahoo-groups-are-important-to-communities-pleas
the groups pages needs to be better or others will leave the bad elements that are in the pages themselves like links, photos, attachments, all need to be phased out that promote violence other items that are not good for groups pages more of my coworkers and acquaintances would return if yahoo made the groups pages better and just have words there are inappropriate material that does not need to be across any groups pages grow up yahoo and make better or discontinue all groups pages
we love Yahoo! Groups too and depend on it and need it to survive and be nurtured. It's such an important product for so many.
I Hope The groups will survive as they are better than facebook groups!
So that means this is not good news, I hope it survives.
Yahoo is cutting back on it's investment in Groups and Answers. My guess is that they will slowly defund these areas, and allow the sun to set on these products.
"As part of its effort to retool, Mayer said the Sunnyvale company will offload some of its real estate holdings and patents and focus on four content areas — News, Sports, Finance and Lifestyle. At the same time, it will reduce investments in properties like Flickr, Yahoo Answers and Groups, and exit products such as Yahoo Games and Smart TV.
