DesiPundit shutting down. Aggregators irrelevant in the age of Twitter and Facebook
I got the following mail from Patrix – the initiator behind Desipundit. I guess in this day and age – where we get to know of great content through our friends and those we follow , the age of the human curated aggregator was becoming more and more smaller. But even I didn’t think that it would be so soon. Thanks to Patrix and the rest of the DP team for nurturing the Desi-blogosphere for the last 5 years.
We are shutting down DesiPundit effective midnight (CST) June 15th, Tuesday. It has been a fun five years and we have enjoyed every moment. We wish to thank all Community Members for sharing your content with our readers and I hope we managed to win you some readers.
Over at DesiPundit, people have moved on to other things and time & resources haven’t been as plentiful for those who have remained. The Indian blogosphere and presence on other social media networks has expanded greatly and in our experience, it is no longer possible for human-powered aggregators to keep up; at least on a part-time volunteer basis.
We all will be around on our respective blogs and Twitter accounts and will continue to reading your excellent blogs.
Thank you for reading and contributing.
