Soup.io was a social networking and microblogging site from Vienna that shut down on 20 July 2020.
The following notice was posted on the official Soup on 2020-07-10:
The sadest news in the soup history :(
Dear soup.io fans and users,
today, we have to share very sad news. Soup.io will stop working in less than 10 days. :(
It's breaking our heart and we honestly tried whatever we could to keep the platform up and running. But the high costs and low revenue streams made it impossible to continue with it. We invested a lot of personal time and money to operate the platform, but when it's over, it's over.
We are really sorry. Soup.io is part of the internet history and online for one and a half decades.
Here are the hard facts: - In 10 days the platform will stop working. - Backup your data in this time - We will not keep backups nor can we recover your data
July, 20th, 2020 is the due date.
Please, share your thoughts and feelings here.
Your Soup.io TEAM
The same notice was also posted under the title Soup.io will be discontinued :( on another blog run by the team.
Our archival project was only able to cover a small part of the content.
