Farewell NetworkedBlogs

We've had the pleasure of serving you over many years, and we're honored to have built a service that was used by millions of people. NetworkedBlogs started as a weekend side project for fun and was originally called "Blogs I Read", but it grew quickly and I eventually ended up working on it full time. Then we received funding from Facebook's fbFund accelerator and then from 500Startups and TMT and worked really hard to improve it and extend it.

However, despite its popularity, we couldn't make NetworkedBlogs a profitable business. We put ads on the site and charged for additional features, and throughout the years, experimented with many different features and tried several ideas, with limited success. Eventually, about 3 years ago, we concluded that it's not going to work out and we stopped accepting new user registrations and shifted our attention to our new product, Symphony Tools. But we decided to keep the service running to serve existing users for as long as we could. And, today, we're finally pulling the plug and disabling the remaining features.

I'll try to answer as many questions as I can below, but if you have other questions, use the chat box at the bottom (leave a message if we're not online), or email me at waleed@ninua.com.

 

FAQ

Q: Do I need to do anything?

Only if you're using one of these three featurs:

  1. If you have one of our widgets on your blog, then you'll want to remove it.
  2. If you're using syndication to automatically share your blog to Facebook or Twitter, you'll need to find an alternative solution.
  3. If you're using our Blog Tab on your Facebook page you'd want to remove it.

Q: Do I need to delete my account?

No. We'll delete all accounts and the data associated with them once we're done.

Q: I'm a paying subscriber, will you refund my payment?

Yes. We'll cancel all paid subscriptions and issue refunds for unused time. This is going to be a manual process so bare with us as we go through it over the next few weeks.

Q: How do I contact you if I have other questions?

Leave a message in the chat box in the bottom-right corner and we'll get back to you. Or, email me at waleed@ninua.com.

 

Removing the Widgets from your Blog

The process to remove widgets is very similar to installing them, except you remove the code rather than inserting it. Here are a few resources that might help.

Wordpress Blogspot Tumblr

In case you inserted the widget directly in your Website's HTML and need to search for it, here is how our widgets look like and the code associated with each one. Just find that our code in your blog HTML and delete it.
