The time has come to say goodbye to yet another web service that we have come to love. Posterous will be officially closing its doors on April 30, 2013, giving users a couple of months to export content and/or migrate using importers via Wordpress, Tumblr, or Squarespace. Posterous is a social blogging service that allows you to post once, on your posterous account, and have that content dispersed to any other social networking or blogging site you have. As some may know, Poserous was acquired by Twitter during the early part of 2012 and now, almost a year later, they are closing their doors. They are going to focus all of their talents on Twitter projects. They offer directions for backing content up:
1. Go to http://posterous.com/#backup.
2. Click to request a backup if your Space by clicking "Request Backup" next to your Space name.
3. When your backup is ready, you'll receive an email.
4. Return to http://posterous.com/#backup to download a .zip file.
*You must request a backup by April 30!
If you are tired of this happening to you just when you fall in love with a site and learn all of its tricks check out the new site, by Posterous co-founder Garry Tan, called Posthaven. They vow never to close or be acquired and that security will only cost you $5/mo.
