And there was much rejoicing in frats and sororities across America: anonymous gossip forum JuicyCampus has gone out of business.
JuicyCampus is best (and only) remembered on Columbia’s campus for briefly surging in popularity after former CCSC president Michelle Diamond explored banning the site. When opposed on the grounds that this was “a university, not communist China,” (not to mention that it would be nearly impossible to block) Diamond quickly backed off, and the site returned to obscurity.
In the end, though, the recession killed JuicyCampus. “In these historically difficult economic times, online ad revenue has plummeted and venture capital funding has dissolved,” wrote JuicyCampus “founder and CEO” Matt Ivester in a press release. “JuicyCampus’ exponential growth outpaced our ability to muster the resources needed to survive this economic downturn.” Every cloud really does have a silver lining.
