Path has just announced it will shut down its social network service on October 18. Unfortunately, Path proved to be a failed experiment, even though it took the team behind the service 8 years to realize it. In an official statement, Path says that it tried everything to keep its social network live but ultimately decided to pull the plug on the service. Path users can obtain a copy of their data (images, text, videos) prior to October 18, but after that date, the back service site will not be accessible any longer. So, make sure to download and keep copies of your data if you want to have access from October 18. Also, iOS users who purchased a premium subscription will have to follow the steps as per the Apple’s guidelines to get refunded. On the other hand, Android users who want a refund must send Path an email in which they should specify their email account and Google transaction ID number.
