On April 30th, Posterous will officially turn off posterous.com and mobile apps in order to focus 100% of their efforts on Twitter. This means that as of April 30, Posterous Spaces will no longer be available either to view or to edit.
Posterous launched in 2008 as a premier blogging tool, which was very easy to use and great for those businesses looking at getting an entry level blogging system, which was easy to share photos and connect with your social networks. Since being acquired by Twitter almost one year ago, Posterous continued building features to help you discover and share what’s happening in your business world.
If you currently have a Posterous blog you can download all of your Posterous Spaces including your photos, videos, and documents up until April 30, 2013.
Here are the steps:
Go to http://posterous.com/#backup.
Click to request a backup of your Space by clicking “Request Backup” next to your Space name.
When your backup is ready, you’ll receive an email.
Return to http://posterous.com/#backup to download a .zip file.
Just remember: you need to back up your Spaces by April 30.
