meta has announced that it will shut down its Cameo-like app, Super, on February 15, 2023. The company says that when it began developing Super in 2020, it had hoped to create a virtual meet and greet experience similar to what you experience at a real-life event like VidCon or Comic-Con.
“However, what we found we created was a much greater opportunity for creators and fans to connect with each other in fun and exciting ways,” the company said in a statement. pronunciation. “We saw creators and fans raise money for charities, launch a new series of books, try new pranks for standup routines, and even play trivia against each other. It’s been great to see the joy and creativity in each new Super event. Unfortunately, the time has come for us to say goodbye. We hope you enjoyed using Super as much as we enjoyed building it for you.”
While Super won’t officially shut down until February, users won’t be able to create a new event during the shutdown period. If users have an upcoming scheduled event on Super, the company recommends rescheduling the event on another platform. Meta says users who participated in or hosted a Super Event will be able to download their recorded media before the company officially shuts down its website in February.
Super joins a long list of experiments and apps discontinued by Meta this year. The company recently shut down its live shopping feature on Facebook on Oct. 1 to shift focus to Reels. Also in October, Facebook shut down its standalone gaming app two years after its launch. In September, Meta Neighborhoods, the Nextdoor clone launched last year to standardize the way neighbors connect and share local news and information on Facebook, shut down.
In July, Meta Tuned, the social app for couples, shut down just over two years after launching. In March, Facebook shut down its student social network called Campus. In January, the company shut down its video speed dating service called Sparked.
