Backfence didn’t make it

leave a comment »

At the beginning of the year we had the warnings, and the site had posted notices that it will shut down “in the next few days”.

Peter Krasilovsky’s noted that the site’s legacy may be that it pushed local newspapers into adjusting to hyper-local communities.

Scott Karp argues that there were already other, better sites out there which made Backfence irrelevant.

But there are other competitors to Backfence. Topix has had a big marketing blitz in the US recently.
