SezWho is gone, says Jitendra Gupta
I received this email on Friday, March 27, 2009.
It seems as though time has run out for Jitendra and many users of SezWho.com… Myself included. When I first looked at this plug-in and network, it seemed like a pretty good tool, although a little sluggish; to enhance a blog and let readers rate articles and comments from other readers and give everyone a form of instant feedback. I’m sure that SezWho brought in most of their revenue through advertising and joint networks with other applications, but with they ran into a little trouble back in July of 2008 as seen here, when they partnered up with some big names in the blogging community.
Sadly, even that didn’t work out and they find themselves closing up shop. The world economic downturn is reaching more people every day. Although you may read about other issues in this company closure about skeptical companies SezWho partnered with, it’s obvious that people without jobs cannot spend money, businesses cannot advertise when people are not using their products or services and newspapers, magazines and websites will not be able to survive without advertising revenues from those companies.
Bottom line though. The SezWho application and product and community was a good one, I will miss it and so will many other bloggers.
