Yahoo has indicated that the Yahoo Groups site will continue to exist, but users will no longer be able to upload new content from October 21. As of December 14 all content posted on the site will be permanently deleted.
"You have until that date to save anything you upload," the announcement said.
The company also says that all public groups will be made private, to continue giving admins limited access to some of the group settings and some of the tools managements.
Any new team member will need to request an invitation or be invited by a manager to be able to participate in a private one.
Yahoo goes on to say that users still want to share information and files from Yahoo Groups, they can do so via email.
"You will be able to contact your teams via email and search for private teams on the site," the company said.
Yahoo did not say why it made that decision in its announcement.
Recall that Yahoo was acquired by Verizon, with a deal worth $4,5 billion. The purchase was completed in 2017.
Earlier this year, Verizon said goodbye to Tumblr, which it sold to Automattic, the parent company of WordPress. Verizon had also acquired Tumblr as part of Yahoo's acquisition agreement.
Yahoo had acquired Tumblr 2013 with a $ 1,1 billion deal.
