Photo and video sharing site Ringo apparently succumbed to competition and will end its service at the end of this month. Ringo is a fast and simple photo and video sharing site. In recent months, it has improved its website’s looks and services and have asked members to fill in surveys or visit sponsor sites to ‘keep Ringo free.’
Ringo yesterday sent its members the notice below:
Dear Ringo member,
After much consideration we have decided to end the Ringo service.
As of June 30, 2008 the Ringo service is ending and you will no longer have access to your Ringo account.
Members will be able to download photos before the service ends alternatively they can also order CDs of their photos. Ringo claimed that a partner, who used to host videos for them, decided to end the service. They did not state how members will be able to retrieve uploaded videos.
