Yahoo Groups - Social service from Yahoo, which last several years, almost did not develop and did not bring a substantial profit corporation.

Yahoo Clues - service, clearly demonstrating the search trends. Western marketers often use it for the selection of keywords, because aggregated resource is the most talked about information on celebrities.
