Imzy, the nicer Reddit, is shutting down

As quietly as it came, community site Imzy is shutting down after just over a year of operation.

Imzy was created by former Reddit employees Dan McComas and Jessica Moreno as a safer, friendlier version of the popular community site. This approach doesn’t seem to have served Imzy well in the long run:

We’ve loved getting to know all of you and seeing you build communities and make new friends. Unfortunately, we were not able to find our place in the market. We still feel that the internet deserves better and hope that we see more teams take on this challenge in the future.

Imzy is offering everyone time to get their data off of the site and redirect community members to new meeting places. The whole site will go dark on June 23.
