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.


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]
