JuicyCampus shutting down
It's a surprising development, given that the site enjoyed a solid traffic ranking on Alexa with almost exclusively user-generated content with no cost to the company.
The site generated tremendous controversy, with numerous universities banning access to JuicyCampus because of the emotional havoc it wreaked on sensitive students. JuicyCampus apparently never generated the cash to match the media firestorm, but it's still been an important piece of the debate on privacy and first amendment rights on college campuses.
Look for imitators to pick up the slack -- There is far too much demand for on-campus gossip for the concept to disappear completely.
