GetBack.com was a social networking and multi-media website based out of Los Angeles, CA that was active between 2007 and 2010.[1] Its aim was to help baby boomers rediscover pop culture from past decades and interact with their peers.[2]

About[edit]

In 2007, GetBack.Com was launched by executives from its sister company Shout! Factory[3] along with veterans of IFILM and MTV.[citation needed]

The site collection of cultural media ranged from the 1960s through the 1990s. Users were able to watch music videos, TV clips, and interviews.[2] There were also artist pages that include artist-related media as well as bios, timelines, "then and now" galleries, and comment boards.

Additionally, the site contained traditional social networking features such as profiles, chat, messaging and user-generated content uploads. Widgets and other elements were available, as well as early game classics such as Tetris, Frogger, and Super Mario Bros.[2]

GetBack.com closed down in January 2010, with the intention of relaunching in March of that year. As of 2012, the site remains down, and its domain parked.
