Dailybooth, the web-based photo-sharing site will, as of today (Nov. 14) no longer upload users’ pictures. The site will be shut down completely Dec. 31.
Users have until the end of this year to download their data before it is permanently deleted.
Once on the correct webpage, users must login to their accounts and click the ‘create archive’ button. Once the archive has been created, click download.
According to an e-mail sent out to its users, Dailybooth says it is “no longer feasible” to keep the website running.
There had been rumors that the e-mail is a hoax because it was addressed to Username, rather than to the actual user. Also, the site’s blog appeared to be the victim of a hack.
The Next Web, however, was in touch with the company, which confirmed the shutdown.
The popularity of Instagram may have played a role in Dailybooth’s impending departure — but a small role.
The team behind Dailybooth — as well as the Batch app team — was acquired by Airbnb in July. (Con’t Click Read More and To See Videos)
