GreatestJournal

From Fan History Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

GreatestJournal is a LiveJournal clone. Though it is not as popular as LiveJournal, many role-playing games make their homes at GJ because of the 2000 userpic perk.

Many LiveJournal users established duplicate journals or moved to GreatestJournal, InsaneJournal, and JournalFen following Strikethrough, LiveJournal's suspension of user accounts in May, 2007.

History

In early December 2007, LiveJournal announced that it had been acquired by SUP, a Russian blogging service. This led to another exodus of LiveJournal users to sites like GreatestJournal and InsaneJournal. The increased load was too much for GreatestJournal to handle so they reduced their services and encouraged people to use InsaneJournal instead. This led to a slow down in services at InsaneJournal.

In January 2009, GreatestJournal finally died. [2][3]
