wird geschlossen

posterousDas hat mich ziemlich überrascht - weil ich Posterus schon komplett vergessen hatte. Früher nutzte ich den Dienst, um meine Instagram-Fotos darauf zu sharen. Irgendwann ging das aber nicht mehr und naja, ich verlor ihn aus den Augen. Und jetzt… wirds Dicht gemacht. Am 30. April schon ist Schluss.

Man kümmere sich nun um Twitter. Hier gehts zu meinem Microblog dort.

Wenn man sich bei Posterous einloggt und die URL aufruft, kann man den Inhalt herunter laden.

Folgend wird die Mail von Posterous zitiert.

Hi thafaker,

Posterous launched in 2008. Our mission was to make it easier to share photos and connect with your social networks. Since joining Twitter about one year ago, we’ve been able to continue that journey, building features to help you discover and share what’s happening in the world – on an even larger scale.

On April 30th, we will turn off and our mobile apps in order to focus 100% of our efforts on Twitter. This means that as of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit.

Right now, you can download all of your Posterous Spaces including your photos, videos, and documents.

Here are the steps:

Go to
Click to request a backup of your Space by clicking “Request Backup” next to your Space name.
Return to to download a .zip file.
If you want to move your site to another service, WordPress and Squarespace offer importers that can move all of your content over to either service. Just remember: you need to back up your Spaces by April 30.

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.

Sachin Agarwal, Founder and CEO
