We are starting an exciting new chapter of our journey helping creators around the world share their stories, skills and ideas on LinkedIn.
To focus on the massive opportunity at LinkedIn, we’re going to sunset the Jumprope platform. We will be taking down the website and apps later this month, starting August 20.
This wasn’t an easy decision. We started Jumprope to empower anyone to share their knowledge and passion in an engaging video-based format. But, while 2 million people per month watch Jumpropes on our platform, we realized we could build something so much bigger if we joined LinkedIn. This truly is an opportunity to fulfill the Jumprope vision of reaching a global community.
Jumprope will be discontinued on August 20, 2021; our apps will be removed from the App Stores and our website will no longer be live. If you’re a creator, we suggest you download your content before August 20th. Learn more about what to do here.
We are grateful to the tens of thousands of creators (especially the many of you who were previously intimidated by video!), who created high quality content from your kitchens, bathrooms, gyms and garages. Check out this post highlighting some of the most viewed of the 65,000 Jumpropes created.
Again, thanks to our amazing creators, community and team members for joining us on this journey. We look forward to seeing you on LinkedIn.
