Well, this appears to be one of those cases in which things end with a whimper, rather than a bang, but Posterous Spaces, the easy to use blogging platform, shut down on 30 April. There does not seem to be much rending of garments and gnashing of teeth, and given that they made the death announcement back in February, and Twitter acquired Posterous Spaces in 2012, the shut down has been a long time coming. I happened to really like Posterous for a few reasons (see this, and this):
Before Facebook snapped up Instagram, ended it as a phone-only-experience, made it accessible via the the web, and basically started a mini-war with Twitter, I loved using Posterous to post IG shots. I also had some good experience creating a team blog. No doubt, Tumblr pretty much trounced Posterous, and the former’s success contributed mightily to this shut-down. I for one enjoyed the platform, found it useful and am somewhat sad to see it go.
