Rupture was a social networking site for gamers. Users were able to create profiles and interact with one another with the standard array of social networking tools.

History[edit]

Rupture was founded by Shawn Fanning in June 2006. He did so because he wished to foster communication between players, find out what they're playing, and provide a showcase where they could display their accomplishments.[1]

In June 2008 Electronic Arts, Inc. purchased ThreeSF, Inc., parent company of Rupture.[2]
