When we started on this journey together in January 2010, we had a grand vision for developing a social network for gay men that would help us discover where to go, what to do, and who to meet.
We’ve had a lot of fun building toward that vision and we’ve met some incredible people along the way. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed and appreciated your experience with us. Your participation and contribution to Fab.com has been the core of our popularity.
This past year has been a monumental year for gay rights and acceptance. From the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, to court victories over Prop 8, "Born This Way," the President walking away from the Defense of Marriage Act, and the impact of the It Gets Better Project, this has been an incredible year of progress.
As we reflected on these developments, we realized that all of this progress has diminished the need for a gay-specific social network. We don’t need a gay Facebook or a gay Yelp or a gay Foursquare or a gay Groupon. The original versions are fantastic, and we are becoming more and more integrated into the mainstream.
At the same time, we recognized that one of the aspects of Fab that we enjoy the most and that our users are getting great value from -- providing great deals on amazing products and services -- has little to do with sexual orientation. A great find is a great find and a great deal is a great deal, regardless of who you are.
So we have decided to turn the page and to embark on a new journey. The new Fab.com will re-launch as a website for great design. We will feature daily design inspirations for everyone, including daily 50% discounts on ‘wow’ products from leading manufacturers. The new Fab.com will no longer be just for gay men. It will be for design enthusiasts everywhere.
Thank you for your support and continued interest in Fab.com. And check out our new site. As always, it’s Fab.
