The Kifi Team is joining Google

Today, the Kifi team is excited to announce that we’ll be joining Google.

The mission at Kifi has always been to connect people with knowledge. We created a service that seamlessly enables organizing, sharing, discussing, and finding the content you and your team values, which has resulted in more flexible and intuitive collaboration across the internet. We also spent significant time creating a service that overlays context on your browsing and sharing experiences to increase usefulness and understanding.

We see a lot of alignment to Google’s mission to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our team will be joining the Spaces team at Google to build solutions focused on improving group sharing, conversation, and content finding. Frankly, we’re thrilled they have a bit of “space” for us!

What Does this Mean for Kifi Users?

Although the Kifi service and data will not become part of Google, you’ll be able to use Kifi for the next few weeks, after which you’ll still be able to easily export your data for a few weeks. For those who may be interested in the technical aspects of our export format, which includes much of your data on Kifi, please see the Exporting User Data technical overview. You can find the latest status on kifi.com.

We’d like to thank everyone that has been a part of Kifi since launching a little over two years ago. We’ve loved working alongside you & your teams and we’re truly grateful for all of the love we’ve received along the way.

So long, and thanks for all the keeps.
