If you haven’t found out before this post, I have some bad news. On Thursday, Polyvore was ‘acquired’ by the Canadian-based company SSense. While the company SSense is a fashion retailer, it seems that not only did they ‘acquire’ Polyvore’s .COM platform, but their Facebook and other social media accounts. No….no announcement was made prior to the transaction to its followers, no email was sent out to the boutiques, nothing.
Polyvore, the community-based website was initially parented by Yahoo, Inc, then Oath, Inc who then gave up ownership to SSense who has, apparently, dissolved Polyvore completely. As far as the data, links, and other uploads associated with the website….they no longer exist.
