We at LiveCitizen are very sad to announce the closure of livecitizen.com. The site was taken down on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 12pm (PST) .
Unfortunately, LiveCitizen has not attracted an audience large enough to sustain itself and despite the popularity of the election year we fell short of what we desired as far as the public's interest in our debate site.
After three years of experimenting in citizen journalism, polling and debating we have concluded that it would be unlikely to be able to continue with the struggle of attracting and keeping a large user base. So, we made the very difficult decision to finally pull the plug and we are deeply saddened to let it go.
We have long held this opportunity to build a platform that allowed citizens to speak their minds and engage in important discussions that could change perspectives or inspire each other to work together creatively towards a common goal. For those of you who shared this idea and frequented our site, we are entirely grateful.
We want to thank you, our livecitizen community, for pouring your thoughts, opinions and ideas into our website which took on a life of its own. Please keep expressing your voice and defending your stance.
