I checked out Ovi Share at Mobile World Congress a couple of years ago and after seeing all that the sharing service could do I intended to switch over to it for all my photo and video hosting. I loved how you could share feeds with family and friends so they could be updated and even send photos to the service and thought the functionality looked extremely useful. However, I tried it for a month or two and then just went back to my tried and true solutions of Flickr and YouTube. Now with photo sharing supported in Facebook and Twitter social networking services, there seems to be little need for another service. I just read on ZOMG it Cj that Nokia is halting further development of Share on Ovi.

I live in the Puget Sound area and just this past week heard about the closing of the Share on Ovi (previously Twango) office here in the area. This was sad news, especially given that they just recently renovated their offices.

Last year Nokia’s major focus seemed to be on lining up services to be branded under the Ovi name. With the changes in the economy I wonder if Nokia is seriously evaluating all of these services and seeing which ones people are actually using.

Hopefully, we will see Nokia integrate support for existing popular services that will not be going away anytime soon. It sounds like you can still use the Share on Ovi service, but with funds no longer going to support it I am not sure you want to put content up on a site that may not be around much longer.

Do you use Share on Ovi?
