Farewell, Ping. As expected, Apple’s much-beleagured attempt at launching its own social media network is going to the graveyard of tried, but failed Apple ideas. A notification in the Ping area of iTunes shows that the feature will no longer be available as of September 30, and 9to5Mac noticed that the service is no longer accepting new members. The Ping URL already redirects back to the main iTunes page.

Ping to bow out on September 30 originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Wed, 12 Sep 2012 19:45:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
