Video podcasting pioneer turned commercial video platform provider Viddler is getting ready to rid itself of its roots: Viddler informed its users in an email this week that it will remove all personal accounts, and delete the videos associated with those accounts, by March 11.
From the email:
“In 2006, Viddler’s founding business model was based on the creation of a community site for video enthusiasts and personal sharing. At the time, our business revenue model was driven through advertising. As a Viddler community user, you were a part of this model. As time has passed Viddler is no longer able to support this offering and business model.”
