Spaces is a Russian social network service that targets mobile phone users.[1][2]

History

The website was launched in 2006.[citation needed]

In 2009, it was ranked 7th on Opera's top ten visited social networking sites.[3]

Konstantin Vladimirovich Rak, who was sued by Epic Games for allegedly creating cheats to Fortnite, was a user of the service.[4]

Currently, the site is going through not very good times of blocking in Russia, frequent changes of site addresses and constant DDOSS attacks. In 2022, the social network changed 7 domain names, due to tightening Internet censorship and frequent blocking in Russia.
