Farewell to Recommendr, Social Shopping – Social Commerce

It has been an amazing ride, but effective today, the Recommendr site has ceased operation.

I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the site and made the site a valuable resource for shoppers. Our developers were fantastic and worked tirelessly to deliver amazing code on schedule. We were amazed by the technical solutions our team developed and the innovative product enhancements and features they thought of. Our legal representation was top notch. We can’t stop raving about the enthusiasm and quality of advice we received from Gunderson Dettmer. If you’re an entrepreneur and need corporate legal representation, you must check them out.

We’ve analyzed what we did right and the mistakes we made, but in the end it comes down to one simple fact – we didn’t build enough critical mass to take the company to the next level.

Thanks again,

Eric Goh
Co-founder, Recommendr, Inc.

    This saddens me. I was a member and I just came back after a long time of disappearance to take an opinion about something. I hope and wish that recommendr.com will come back soon; alive and nourishing like ever again!
    Bless all its creators and members..

    Rackspace is always a good choice if you can afford them. If you’re looking for a budget choice, check out Serverbeach. But also, do consider launching using Amazon’s cloud:

    Hi there, really sorry to see Recommendr go. Was there a final straw that led to this decision? Social shopping is an area with huge potential, but also very difficult to crack, as many people have found. Do you have a new project that you’re focusing on? Or taking a well deserved break?

    oh I am so sad to see this happen. I really liked your site and I would use you as the premier referral service to others.
