    If you've ever heard of LiveProfile, it looks like it is shutting down December 1st of this year. The reason looks to be the cross platform launch of BlackBerry Messenger. They send mails with the news around and were promoting BBM.

    Good catch! BlackBerry purchased LiveProfile a couple years ago but never really did anything with it as far as I could tell. Perhaps they used some of the LP code for BBM?

    I think this is who is helping them develop the android or IOS app. Especially since live profile used pins too.

    This was bound to happen

    I use to beta test for LiveProfile back when it first came out. Great devs and great support.

    Totally. When it first came out and I needed support they'd respond to my emails within an hour. That was great. I loved the pin shares on twitter. I had some fun times with LP.

    If BlackBerry owns LiveProfile there is no point maintaining the service if BBM duplicates the Google Android and Apple iOS versions of BlackBerry Messenger.

    Precisely.

    Now BlackBerry just needs to purchase other small ones, shut them down and direct them to BBM.

    Wasn't LiveProfile pin based as well? If I was BB, I'd transition them to BBM automatically without them having to sign-up again and maintain their existing friend's list. This way, they automatically get all of LiveProfile's active user base.
