BeenUp2 first launched in 2006 when three friends took $100,000 in angel funding and set out to build “Twitter with photos”. Over the next several years they saw rapid growth but couldn’t keep up with the well funded platforms. So in 2012 BeenUp2 closed its doors.
But during those 5 or 6 years we built a community that has not been paralleled. It was a beautiful community with civil interactions where strong friendships were forged, people were supported by one another and wonderful things happened.
We want this community again, so we’re going to rebuild it.
