Zomato has shutdown Urbanspoon, about five months after acquiring it, and has started migrating Urbanspoon users to its own platform. The company has said that this decision was taken due to the expense of maintaining two platforms at a time. So long, Urbanspoon! pic.twitter.com/rWCX8Iaxpc — Zomato (@Zomato) June 1, 2015 Following this redirection, Urbanspoon users will have to get accustomed to a few changes. For instance, the rating system on Urbanspoon follows that 'like' and 'dislike' model, while Zomato follows that five point scale model. Also, Urbanspoon's iconic shake-to-search feature isn't updated yet. @Zomato @ZomatoUK Thanks for auto-updating all the spoonback links! Nicely done. — Londonpiggy (@londonpiggy) June 1, 2015 @Zomato so all my urbanspoon likes are gone forever. No way to find that out anymore? Really wish I knew before so I could move to new site…
