Yahoo! is a web services provider headquartered in Sunnyvale, California and owned by Verizon Communications through Oath Inc. The original Yahoo! company was founded by Jerry Yang and David Filo in January 1994 and was incorporated on March 2, 1995. Yahoo was one of the pioneers of the early Internet era in the 1990s.

On May 19, 2013 the Yahoo! board of directors approved a $1.1 billion purchase of blogging site Tumblr.

Yahoo! Groups were a popular home of fandom activity before newer forms of social media took hold.
