Gossip site Juicycampus folds

February 5, 2009 5:43:46 AM PST
JuicyCampus.com has run dry. The Web site that posted all manner of gossip about college students is out of business. The site's founder blames the national economic crisis and the falling ad revenue that comes as a result.

During its life, the site also ran into its share of legal issues. Authorities in New Jersey subpoenaed the company as it investigated whether the site followed rules requiring users to refrain from posting abusive or obscene content.

JuicyCampus also faced a federal lawsuit from a University of Delaware student who wanted to know who was posting gossip about her on the site.
