Posterous, launched in 2008 and acquired by Twitter around a year ago, is preparing to shut down posterous.com to “focus 100% of our efforts on Twitter”.
Posterous Spaces was aimed at helping users share content easier and although not amongst the largest social networks it has a loyal user and follower base.
Sachin Agarwal, founder and Chief Executive, said: “As of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit.”
The social platform has made http://posterous.com/#backup available for users to download all their content from the website before it is brought down.
Also available is a process to migrate the Posterous content to another service such as WordPress andSquarespace.
Agarwal concluded: “We’d like to thank the millions of Posterous users who have supported us on our incredible journey. We hope to provide you with as easy a transition as possible, and look forward to seeing you on Twitter. Thank you.”
