EveryBlock, a website that aggregated local news, has suddenly announced that it "has closed its doors."
Users of the site were greeted to an unexpected farewell message Thursday morning via email or upon logging in to the site. EveryBlock also linked to its goodbye blog on Twitter, saying "Farewell, neighbors."
"Thanks for the contributions, for the questions, and for allowing us to connect you to each other, in many cases to make great things happen in your community," the message reads. "Along the way, we hope we’ve helped you be a better neighbor."
EveryBlock presented the news it aggregated based off of the geographical location of the story's content. Despite that innovative approach, the site couldn't weather the challenging times currently faced by the news industry.
