List of Closed Social Networks
Today I decided to prune may My Social Networks bookmarks folder, getting rid of links to my accounts and profiles on those services that have closed. There were many.
When I mentioned my activity on Twitter (@iamPariah, by the way), @Kathy_Writer suggested I list all the closed services I find, er, not find, so that others can be aware of the closures. Good idea, Kathy. Although I deleted the bookmarks for a few before I began listing around the Ms, here are those I was able to list.
All of the following social media services have shut down on or before this post’s date.
- myYearBook (now MeetMe, a dating site)
- Ping.fm (still up for the moment, Seesmic shutting it down “soon”)
- SocialThing (now AOL’s Lifestream)
- Meme by Yahoo
These are just those networks to which I had belonged (or at least once tried). If you know of others, please add them in the comments.
