Google ending support for much of Google Groups, pushes you to Docs and Sites

UPDATED 5:05 p.m. ET:

Google confirms. Starting Jan. 13, you’ll no longer be able to upload new content.


Much of what’s good about Google Groups is going away: Welcome messages and files are no more. This, Google says, is so “we can focus on improving the core functionalities of Google Groups — mailing lists and forum discussions.”

Instead, Google says, you should use Google Docs or Google Sites if you want anything other than just another heavily automated message board — “the content will only be available for viewing and only existing files will be downloadable.”
