The DList, a gay focused social networking site, will be closing their “big gay doors” at the beginning of next year. Citing the popularity of other social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, they explained, “Without as much interest or need, we just can’t keep the community going as a vital, vibrant, sexy and fun place to express yourself. And no one wants to be a bore.”
I still have an account there and haven’t logged in a long while. I honestly don’t know if I used it for anything else but to hunt for men. With apps like Grindr and Scruff there is really no need for the site to stay open.
I will say, however, it was a graceful exit for a social networking site. Maybe MySpace should do the same?
