Most of us have heard of, if not actually visited the infamous forum / message board 4chan. But it looks like 4chan is struggling to stay afloat.
4chan’s owner, Hiroyuki Nisimura, wrote in a post this Sunday that, “4chan can’t afford infrastructure costs, network, fee, servers cost, CDN and etc.” According to Nisimura, ads have not been effective enough to keep the site up and running, neither has having a subscription structure for additional features. Nisimura wanted to stay true to the original 4chan. “We tried to keep 4chan as is. But I failed. I am sincerely sorry.”
