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.
