What happen to the past founder of Yahoo, before Verizon Media become the operator of Y!A?

I know the 1st founder of Yahoo was  Jerry Yang and David Filo. I'm wondering what happened to those founders? I found out that Jerry Yang and David Filo are a good operator on Yahoo, than Verizon Media. When Verizon Media become the operator of Yahoo, the yahoo answers become worse..

    Verizon Media owns/runs all of Yahoo, not just Yahoo Answers. A little research would likely turn up the current whereabouts (business wise) of Yang and Filo. Example, a quick search on Yang revealed this page with some after-Yahoo info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Yang

    Move your question to Yahoo Products>Other-Yahoo Products or Business & Finance>Corporations as it's currently in Yahoo Products>Yahoo Answers and not applicable to this subcategory, for questions about how YA works and the rules here (and thus decreases your chances of getting many useful answers).

    You can move your question by clicking Edit (pencil icon for mobile)>Edit category just beneath your question, then selecting the category in which it is better suited.

    I'm guessing they retired and enjoy the millions they "made"

    They are too old now to handle Yahoo anymore. It happens to everybody. Stars always fade.
