Ah, the just desserts of hubris....

The media industry's worst fears about Facebook's huge algorithm tweak are coming true.

The women-focused publisher LittleThings is shutting its doors, in large part because of Facebook's recent move, the company's CEO, Joe Speiser, told Business Insider.


If you allegedly "build a business" on the back of someone else's distribution system without some sort of contractual guarantee that it will remain available and to your advantage, and that system is not a commodity (e.g. a web host from which you can switch over in hours instead of days), and said other platform has the ability to change the rules on what it shows and to whom (which you were advantaged by previously) and again, you failed to gain any contractual protection against the rug being yanked out from under you then you deserve what you get!

And, in this case, they got it.

PS: The lesson here is to cut the crap and stop building Facesucker's business for them while exposing your butthole!

I'm going to go with the more likely option that the business was failing anyway and the CEO decided to blame facebook rather than themselves.

@bagbalm, The Chive is (clearly) kind of like an online titty bar. However, their readership is large enough that on a semi-regular basis I see people IRL wearing their branded merchandise or sporting a bumper sticker. It isn't a huge deal that they have backed out of FB, but since I would guess most of their readership is under 30, and The Chive's management felt comfortable going it on their own without paying extortion to FB, it may be a sign of things to come for FB.

Yeah I went to that chive page not knowing what it was. The damned hypocrits wanted a facebook login.

Screw them both (hopefully each other).
