Fotolog.com was an international photo sharing and social networking platform, that started in 2002 on fotolog.net, and was last owned by the Brazilian company Doutíssima.
After a few weeks of downtime, it was announced on the main page on January 26, 2016 that fotolog.com was shutting down on February 20, 2016.
As of February 2016, fotolog.com has more than 33.5 million users.
As of July 2016, the site is up and the shutdown notice disappeared, but we still archive it.
It shut down in March 2019.
The shutdown message on the top of the site, written in three languages, reads in English as follows:
- "Dear members, the Fotolog platform could be permanently unavailable in the upcoming weeks.
- We wanted to inform you of this matter, as hosting provider, so you can retrieve your data as quickly as possible and in any event before February the 20th of 2016.
- We hope you can continue your blogs and your photos sharing on other platforms.
- Do not hesitate to share this information with all other members of the community."
How can I help?
Running a Warrior
You can start up a Warrior and there select Fotolog. (If you don't really care what you are archiving, select ArchiveTeam's Choice instead, as at some points ArchiveTeam may prioritize another project.)
Running the script manually
If you use Linux and you're a bit familiar with it, you can try running the script directly.
The instructions can be found at https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/fotolog-grab.

Donating to the Internet Archive
Content downloaded by the ArchiveTeam will be uploaded to the Internet Archive, where it will be stored and be available – hopefully – forever. However, storing it costs thousands of dollars in the long run. So, if you can afford, please consider donating to the Internet Archive, so that this piece of history can be kept for us all. http://archive.org/donate
