Why did yahoo change it from best answer to favorite answer?

Perhaps, yahoo authority thinks it will be better for users.

People complained for years on feedback forums and the suggestion boards about how many best answers were wrong or even dangerous. Yahoo and Verizon have to keep up with the competition or they will lose money and investors, stock holders. Businesses might not buy advertising space on YA.

It's commonly assumed to be because the quality of posts on the site declined significantly, and many OPs were selecting silly or complete gibberish responses to their questions, instead of factual, useful answers. Since the "best" answer wasn't being selected (in many questions) it was changed to "favorite", which indicates it was the response the OP liked the best, whether it actually answered the question/provided useful information, or not.

It was probably changed because people will often pick their favorite answer even though it may not be the best answer.
