No wonder SodaHead shut down. Amirite?

I never saw such crybabies, and guess where they are ALL from? Who would need the headache?

SH did not shutdown, they shifted their focus after being sold. That they decided to close the social media aspect of the business was their prerogative. How they handled it sucked, though.

There once was an internet coward,
Who hereabouts often had lowered,
'Til quite all at once,
He was shown for a dunce,
And was scoured, overpowered and deflowered.

Well, you got a point on SH every time you upvoted a comment or post, so I suppose a bot could go through and produce 50,000 upvotes in a matter of seconds, upvoting everything, willy-nilly.

I bet the Russians were behind it, pretending to be the Italian guy, and Trump undoubtedly colluded!

While some ex-SodaHeaders here have been less than mature, I don’t believe that’s why the site shut down. Bozette has it right that the site decided to go in a different direction (with almost no warning to its users).

SH fell apart because it was run by some idiots and their inbred farm who ran around blocking everyone from the site who disagreed with their hardline backwater views and banned me for speaking out against being stalked and harassed by a loser user who thought sexual assault was hilarious. Good riddance!

I have nothing but contempt for their entire team who caused me to lose contact with some awesome people.

Thing is the amount of users on the site at the end was a complete fabrication and DeBryce openly admitted it in a public forum, then immediately deleted his remarks.

I assume it was because he realized he was basically admitting the company was defrauding their sponsors.

Knowing that, it was no surprise whatsoever when they seized the user-data of every single site member, they'd already sold it to Swagbucks.

Sodahead betrayed their users by monetizing them, they'd never have survived in the current net-marketplace. They shut count themselves lucky that they aren't in jail given California passed a law making certain forms of data-scraping / depublishing illegal. I'm quite sure they had this in mind when they sold out to Protege / Swagbucks just a few months before that law was passed.

Oh, I can believe the user numbers were faked, but it surely didn't take much in the way of observation to realize that the average number of unique daily users could only have amounted to a few thousand, so if the sponsors were defrauded, they also seem not to have been paying much attention.

Nor do I understand why anyone would have placed a whole lot of value on the user-data, most of it being pseudonymous. I don't recall, for example, ever having received advertising or spam that I could connect with my having been a SH member, other than the relatively few ads that appeared on the SH site itself.

The site itself was the only part of SH, their widget on other sites and the widgets of other site on their site, according to them, was also factored into unique traffic. I never bought that either.

Keep in mind, SH was birthed out of Myspace. Quick-logins are always where the real data is found.

Really? At one point, they'd built surveys into the polls themselves. They were as declinable as adware is on a free download. lol

I didn't either off-site, but the polling mechanism was a widget. Site-mods went to great lengths to explain that away though. And you don't have to use the widget for it to compile a data profile for you, fyi.

I guess what I'm not understanding is what really useful profile data did they get? I didn't give them my name, my birthday or my location, although they gave points if you did provide information like that, so really all they could get was a profile of how I answered questions. I'm not sure what use that would be except for metadata.

That would depend greatly on how someone came to the site, I suppose. And whether directly or partnering with other sites, they could easily collect location, browser preferences, same data accessible to any other free site.
