Propeller is Shutting Down On October 1, 2010

by on September 26, 2010

The social networking site has announced to shut down the website from October 1, 2010. The website has not yet spoken about the reasons of shutting the website.

The Chief Architect of the site was Brian Alvey and the lead developer of the site was Alex Rudolff. It was maintained by Weblogs, Inc. CEO Jason Calacanis until he left AOL in November 2006. The current director is Tom Drapeau. Netscape’s market share had been declining for over a year at the time of the change-over.

Propeller was hosted on the domain from June 2006 to September 2007 when it was replaced by the AOL Netscape generic portal.

The previous version of Propeller was released to mixed reactions. Some users liked that they had more participation ability while others found the pages to be harder to navigate and not as structured. Soon after the release of the new site, a story entitled “Netscape’s Blunder” was the top rated story.
