Default SwapNote/Discontinued?

Okay, I am not sure if this has been brought up here, but I have to ask, does anyone think that they will bring back swapnote via spotpass(internet). I am totally disgusted that they discontinued it via spotpass. My god daughters and I used to enjoy writing notes back and forth. I live in Alaska and they are in West Virginia..they are pretty sad they cant write notes to me anymore.

They won't. Nintendo closed it due to sex predators and such.

Miiverse is released now, I suggest using that.

Sorry, but no. 12 year olds and such used it to do d*ck jokes and swearing, so Nintendo said "Swapnote's gotta go. People using our service to message whatever they want to with their friends is a big no-no."

Sorry about you and your daughters. I myself never used the app myself, but I still find it a shame that you and your loved ones can't send messages to each other anymore.

Like Adam said, Miiverse is out. You can't, however, send personal messages on it, and you and your daughters would have to create Nintendo IDs and everything.

I read a story about two Japanese men that were arrested for sexual activity with children via Swapnote, but I'm sure that's a minority.

Miiverse is fine for contacting family and friends, but all of your followers can see what you write.

Plus unless they check their activity feed they'll never know anyone wrote something.
