GetGlue announced today that they are no longer merging with Viggle.
The company said:
We are moving forward as an independent company, and all of us at GetGlue are excited about growing our social network and the leadership position on the second screen. We have a strong product and partnership pipeline for 2013, and look forward to delighting our users and expanding the relationships with major networks, studios and brands.
The two companies had announced plans to merge their operations few days ago. But the deal could not be completed in time. We imagine GetGlue decided it was a smarter move to stay independent right now. They have the funding, they have the users and they are getting good advertisers on their platform.
