From the official Press Release:
WPPassion announced today it has agreed to purchase WPSocial’s and its assets including all products and the wpsocial.com web site. “We are excited to add the WPSocial product suite to our portfolio of WordPress related products and services”, said Mark Ketzler of WPPassion. “WPSocial has created a revolutionary platform of social media aware WordPress plugins and themes that will enhance our offerings to bloggers, affiliate marketers and ecommerce entrepreneurs. We look forward to working with WPSocial’s customers to expand the integrated products and services available to them and continue the high level of support and updates to which they have become accustomed.”
WPSocial was acquired by WPPassion, INC. on September 15, 2014 and has been going through the transition and transmission of its assets over the last month. While Daniel Waser and I (Mike Johnson) had proudly built this company up over the last 3 years, it became evident that Daniel would not be able to continue on with the site due to serious health reasons. Therefore, the site and all its assets have been sold to Mark Ketzler and WPPassion, INC.
What does this mean to the current and future customers of WPSocial? It means the level of service and quality are going to continue to improve and get even better than they already are. Your current purchases are safe and nothing has changed in that manner. Mark has brought on new developers and is dedicated to producing a lot more powerful WordPress plugins and improving upon the products which are staples of WPSocial as well. The future is bright for everyone here at WPSocial.
While we are sad to leave this great company we have built, we leave confident that Mark and WPPassion will continue to make WPSocial a powerful presence in the WordPress Plugin market and will take care of you, the customer better than ever before.
Thanks to everyone who has made WPSocial a success. Your commitment is truly appreciated.
