About six months ago, Facebook removed their “Boxes” feature. This feature, as most readers are aware, allowed users to setup applications to put content on their profiles.
Two of our applications, XSPF Player and Spider Lyrics, made use of this feature. The first was a popular (16k users) music player which allowed users to embed a music player on their profile. The second was a database of lyrics which the user could browse through and put their favorite songs on their profiles.
Since the applications served no other purposes except to display content on user profiles, we will be retiring the two apps. Spider Lyrics has already been removed, but due to the popularity of the second, we want to let people know whats going on before retiring.
