Mobile-Focused Social Network Path Shutting Down Next Month


Some of you may recall a mobile-focused social network called Path. At one point it was even touted as a proper Facebook competitor. Path was built from the ground up for mobile phones and it focused on smaller groups. It never really turned out to be anything close to a Facebook competitor and it has now been confirmed that the social network won’t actually be around for much longer.

The company has confirmed through a post on its official blog that Path is going to be shut down on October 18th, 2020. The social network was launched back in 2020 and while it did pick up enough steam initially, the team says that it’s “inevitable to wind down the service.”

The team will remove the Path app from the App Store and the Google Play Store on October 1st. The service itself will be shut down on October 18th. On the 15th of the following month, all customer service channels for Path will be shut down as well.

Prior to October 18th, users can restore and retrieve a copy of their data which includes images, text and videos. They have to visit https://path.com/settings/backups and log in with their Path account. A link to the backup files will then be sent to them over email.
