Yahoo Answers will shut down down May 4, 2021

Yahoo Answers, a repository of humour and dubious advice, will stop forever on May 4 2021.

Yahoo Answers is home to questions and responses concerning topics such as how to build a shelf, or whether it is illegal to kill an ant, as well as the age old query: “How is babby formed?”

Yahoo, which was bought by VerizonMedia Group in 2017 for $5 billion, says a drop in popularity is behind Yahoo’s shut down of the site.

Since the beginning of Yahoo Answers, sites like Reddit have exploded, allowing users to ask the Internet to answer any questions they like and wait for a flood of answers.
