Recently, I read the news that Formspring is shutting down. I can’t believe that the first & original Q&A portal be closing down soon. With Ask.fm taking in competition since last year, the people of Formspring found it “challenging to sustain the resources needed to keep the lights on.” This post serves as a follow-up of my former post, What More Could You Ask.fm. And like I said there, Formspring’s popularity has waned because of this. If Ask.fm haven’t existed, then this thing shouldn’t have happened.
March 31 will be the last day for asking questions or posting contents on Formspring. And on April 15th, the site will close down for good. When FS closes down, people have no choice but to move to Ask.fm. On the other hand, if you want to keep FS alive, then sign the petition.
