It’s a sad day for fans of alt-tech or really just any real option outside of YouTube.
StoryFire was a video-sharing and storytelling service founded in 2017 by Brian Spitz and Jesse Ridgway.
StoryFire allowed content creators to upload and share videos and written stories. Unlike YouTube, uploads are curated and the site imposes slightly more quality control. The platform aims to compete with YouTube.
The website will cease operations on February 1, 2021 and the app has been taken off of both the App Store and Play Store, according to a video statement by Ridgway.
