But . . . nothing.
Then, this (via MediaPost):
Interest in Ello Craters
Well, that didn’t take long. The new social media hotness, Ello, is no longer new or hotness, and is now more a moderately aged “meh,” judging by the number of searches for “Ello” from Google Trends . . .
The Guardian notes that the volume of searches for Ello climbed from nothing before September 23, to reach its first peak on September 26, followed by a small dip before reaching an all-time peak on September 30 — but has now plunged back to just about where it was before September 23.
Even at its peak interest, Ello received no more than a tenth the volume of searches for “Twitter,” which in turn lags far behind Facebook.
Anyway, we’re over it now.
Goodbye, Ello. We don’t care that we hardly knew ye.
