I have been a member since inception. I understand that Salesforce is getting rid of Data.com Connect! Wont be able to update and get points as of next May 2019. Is there going to be a way to keep my contacts and still use the program or will it be a new program? It does not make sense to shut down a system that works. Also, if shutting down, can anyone recommend an alternative database for me?

@RuralSmoke8, unfortunately the only way to keep your contacts is to export them to a CSV file before May 2019. After May 2019, they will disappear along with this great platform. Also, you should be aware that your post will likely be modified by the moderator to redact your true name. Posting real names, compromises anonymity -- one of the primary tenets of connect.

The entire product is being shut down, retired, sunsetted.
There have been a number of suggestions in The Corner for alternative solutions; none are appealing IMHO.
