Why are they shutting down Yahoo Answers when there are millions of users? Also what is a similar site to use when this one closes in April?

Best Answer:

Sharon: That is a hoax. YA is not shutting down in April.

Other answer:

Sharon:
They are NOT shutting down Yahoo Answers who ever said April is Incorrect

The deal with Yahoo and Verizon has not been Completed yet it wont happen until the End of March providing Verizon does not back down on it

Verizon also has not said what they are going to be doing with the YA site if anything at all

Minister of Truth:
.
ya was recommended to be closed in nov 2015 by some analysts.

.
the # of users isnt the most crucial stat,

profit is and tht's where ya is lacking.

yahoo brass said in nov 2015 it would "dis-invest" in sites tht arent "strong performers"

this on-going glich attack @ ya is a result of that

and of yahoo ceo Marissa Mayhem's layoffs and cost saving cutting.

its said that apr is the shutdown date for ya bc verizon, the buyer of yhoo's web biz, is sched to take possession btwn apr & june.

v dint buy the biz to run it, but for its ''eye balls," we the users.

v wants to bring us into its system and to subject us to its ads.

v has made the point it may not finalize its buy of y bc the govt investigations of y's 2 massive hacks havent been completed.

one of the investigators is the US atty's office for ny.

they often handle criminal invests. for the US atty gen.

Yahoo IS NOT SHUTTING DOWN YA. Only delusional, maniacal mentally ill, ignorant , uninformed people believe this crap.. Yahoo has SOLE YA TO VERIZON.l Exactly WHEN Verizon is going to take over control of YA, NO ONE KNOWS right now, not even Verizon, because Yahoo cannot makes up its mind.when the sale will be final.
