@Arnfinn Nilsen I am aware of that but there is also no archived history for any website hosted under that domain. Not much of a "passion" for WP in my book (lol). 

The real scandal is that this official announcement is nowhere good enough.


Customers should not have to second guess who the new owner is and what track record they have.

@MikeJohnson includes into his announcement their statement “We are excited to add the WPSocial product suite to our portfolio of WordPress related products and services”, said Mark Ketzler of WPPassion. “ ...but with no links, no website, no way to see what THEIR current porfolio of WP related products and serivces are, no contact details of the new owner.


Instead....people start investigating and find a domain for sale with no history, no Google results for someone by the name Mark Ketzler in conjunction with WPPassion or Wordpress.


Yet Mike Johnson's claim that "Mark has big plans and is intent on making the site here and product offerings even better.  I am sure he will." ----- well, having big PLANS and INTEND is one thing, 'seeing is believing' another. That's what is lacking here, that's all I am saying.

Mark Ketzler is now registered as the new owner of WPSocial.

He seems to "own" 55 domains....but when you go check that first one out....it is suspended just like another one I found out (wpfacepages.com / 
wppatch.com / wppassion.com):

@MikeJohnson Don't you think your announcement and replies lack the essential information that your (former) customers deserve? That is, the new owner and his company are nowhere to be found. Like others, I was unable to find a website for WPPassion, nor could I find the person behind this mysterious company. Why have you not done a joint statement, or introduced the new owner with full details, so that people can actually see for themselves who the new owner is and what credentials he has?


I already asked these questions in a previous post here, but you decided to sweep it under the carpet.


Anyhow, perhaps the concern stems from the fact that this new owner's company was only formed less than a week prior to the purchase of WPSocial, hiding behind the curtains of a Delaware Corp.


Wppassion, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation filed on September 9, 2014. The company's File Number is listed as5599691

@WealthPro Great idea in principal, however I think it would be preferable to actually learn what plans the new owners have (as a matter of urgency) .... because perhaps they already have a member forum or private FB group set up.

First off, I wish Daniel all the best in overcoming his health issues, and Mike with any projects in the future. With regard to this announcement, can you please provide more details on WP Passion and Mark Ketzler, in particular their website address which I could not find. Furthermore, will this membership site remain as is, or be incorporated into the new owner's site? What is going to happen to the products and their functionality now and in the near future? 

I own WP Social SEO Pro and WP Social Traffic Blaster, which I have not currently activated on any site, but was going to.

Footer bar not working - and various people have reported this here - yet no reply from the developer ???

Also - I am wondering about the answer to Hank's question also, as I read on your sales page "The plugin will auto disable all of the subscription forms whenever your visitors put in their information .." - but does this mean when you use multiple different optin lists with multiple optin boxes on various pages or posts on the same blog...will subscribing to ONE of them disable all the other subscription forms? --> Basically the same as Hank's question from TWO YEARS AGO (see below) - BUT NO ANSWER?
