Delete the Flockers: Social Browser Calls It Quits
Hard to have a product without an engineering team to develop and maintain it. But that’s the situation Flock found itself in this past January when Zynga “acqhired” the bulk of its engineering talent. And so the social browser start-up is shutting down and discontinuing support for Flock browsers as of April 26. “Flock will no longer be actively maintained, which means you can keep using the product, but key features will stop working after 4/26/11 and over time the browser will no longer be secure as software updates and upgrades will no longer be provided,” the company said in an end-of-support FAQ.
