Google to shutdown its goal sharing social network, Schemer on Feb 7

Google tries every sector of internet and when it thinks it’s not worth, it kills it. Now it’s time to kill the goal sharing social network “Schemer,” as announced officially by Google.

google-schemerOn the Schemer homepage as well as it’s Schemer’s Google+ page, Google revealed that the service will be shutdown and the user-data will be available for download until 7th February 2014, after which those schemes will be permanently deleted.


Launched in December 2011, the idea of Schemer didn’t worked well for the company and it hasn’t focused on market or promote the service anywhere on their services as it is doing for Google+ on several of its other services such as Google search YouTube and Gmail.

Google said in the farewell notice on Schemer website that the users can now use the “Explore” section on Google Maps to find interesting things around or the Field Trip to uncover hidden or unique things in your cities.

Last December, the leaked image of Google’s internal version of the site, which also suggested that the service will ditched soon. Now the official notice revealed by Google looks almost similar to what the leaked photo showed us, except the words written on it.

Note: PhoneDog Media plans to launch its Schemer-type of social network named as iM5 during the SXSW 2014 event to be held at Austin this March. Ahem!
