Storify’s eventual shuttering has been a long time coming. The social timeline curation assistance was acquired by explaining platform Livefyre back in 2013, which, in turn, was picked up by Adobe in May of last year. In a pithily worded mention on its homepage today, the service announced that it will cease to exist as a standalone offering starting next year.
The process of fading from it current form will take a few months, but beginning today, useds will no longer be able to sign up for brand-new details. On May 1 of next year, the company will kill the ability to create brand-new narrations.
Two weeks after that, at 5PM Pacific Time on May 16, the website will shut down for good. The shuttering of the services offered applies to all material and details hosted by Storify. As such, it’s suggesting that users use its export function to save the performance of their duties locally.
