Posterous, the blogging platform acquired by Twitter early last year, announced Friday that it will be shutting down its services in April. Simple sharing service Posterous is shedding its blog origins in favor of becoming a full-featured social network.
Posterous is launching new iPhone and Android apps Wednesday that fully integrate its new group feature, which turns e-mail lists into groups.
Posterous co-founder Garry Tan has bid adieu to his startup and is heading to Y Combinator, where he will serve as designer-in-residence. Posterous has introduced a sweet new feature -- photo slideshows -- for sites, posts and groups; this feature really brings photos to life.
Posterous is today launching a new Groups feature that channels the startup's early days as an e-mail-centric service. Posterous has been around since 2006, but the super-simple blogging platform is still relatively unknown when compared to blog giants like WordPress and Tumblr.


Posterous is in the midst of an aggressive 15-day campaign to get users of other services such as Tumblr and Ning to switch to its blogging platform. Posterous -- the e-mail-to-blog-to-everywhere platform -- has just introduced a new feature that will let users schedule posts to be published in the future via e-mail, web or bookmarklet. Each Friday we choose a Lunchtime Poll topic to get a sense of how Mashable readers feel about the chosen topic of the week.
