I was not able to visit my Yahoo Mail account for several days and I just opened it today on a whim. Among the long list of mails, there was a mail from Helium Publishing with a subject "Important news from Helium Publishing."

I thought that they would only warn me that my account would be deactivated since I had not visited or write anything there for ages. But to my surprise, they would be the one shutting themselves down. 

Well, I was not really surprised. I knew that Helium would close soon after their concept and redesign attempts to gather more members. Like Friendster, Helium had lost its popularity.

Once, Helium was the most popular revenue sharing website, and now, Helium will be officially closing on December 15, 2014.

I'm not actually too attached with Helium since I only joined recently. I think it was late December of 2013. And I had only written a single article.

Here's a screencap of Helium's email:


Who will shut down next? Will it be Triond, Squidoo, Hubpages, or the controversial Bubblews?
