Yahoo Groups...RIP or not...
« on: April 24, 2018, 05:22:17 AM »
...RIP? I don't know how true this is. It was posted to one of my pulp collecting groups.


*Oath Inc. is a division of Verizon, the company that*
*bought most of Yahoo.*
*Virtually all of Verizon's digital content operations*
*are now part of Oath including AOL.*
*Yahoo groups have not been maintained since 2014*
*after the failure of the Neo changes.*

*Groups I.O. are very restrictive in what can be posted.*
*Absolutely no copyrighted material can be posted which*
*means no file sharing of books, magazines, music,*
*movies, tv shows etc. No adult material. This is quite rigorously *
*enforced. **I belong to one Group I.O. which transferred from Yahoo*
*a little over a year ago. Not much is posted anymore.*

*I would consider Google Groups over I.O. *
*Google Groups have been around almost as long and*
*offer much better photo storage which can be viewed*
*in your emails and on the group site whether embedded*
*or attachments, something you can not do on Yahoo now.*
*There are not many restrictions and Google Groups are*
*maintained by Google, not abandoned like Yahoo.*

*Dorf :)*

Some people have been commenting on this, to the effect that they find nothing on the internet, while come Canadian members say it is all over theirs.

I know that you can store files in your google drive, though I donít remember how much space you have, and Iív been experimenting with photos, groups, and sites. Iím just not sure if this is going to be a functional replacement for yahoo groups.
