@TheFilipinoEntrepreneur.com I totally agree with you. I am not too sure as to when multiply.com will vanish but if that happens, there would a lot of bloggers, sellers, etc who will suffer. It would always be better to host your own site. Nowadays, there are cheaper yet reliable webhosts.

I seldom visit and log in to multiply account because I have my own hosted sites and blogs anyway. I’m just experimenting if it will benefit me one way or the other but it seems that if I promote my page on multiply.com, I’ll be just promoting multiply.com itself and if ever multiply will vanish from cyberspace along with it is my hardwork and my website. Just thinking……why there are still many sellers build online stores on multiply.com rather than host their own site and register their own domain name?

It’s not just about the size of the site. Multiply has captured a good niche, SMEs. They just have to focus on that and continue enhancing their features for them and the buyers.

This can prove to be longer term than just by being a social network. They just have to concentrate their efforts in making sure that the sellers get constant traffic to their shops, and buyers find what they’re looking for.

If they sustain this, it’ll be a great eco-system.

i agree with sir carlo, for facebook to maintain its number one spot they should seek for additional research and development that would going to increase their social appeal in the blogosphere.

@dean tracy – i think you’re referring to me. :) Well of course no one can really tell when FB will go down exactly (or receive less traffic :)); that is just my opinion(and of course, as what I have said, I may be wrong :)). Yeah I think 2 years is too soon. :)
But I will have to agree on what you’ve said that nothing on the blogosphere is permanent. :D
2 years of course may be too soon judging from your data, but we all know that “it” will come eventually – Facebook may soon face the “inevitable” (unless FB of course keeps on improving its platform :D)

Facebook became popular because it’s easy to link up with the other members and Multiply realizes that by changing their business model. Just recently, they supported online sellers which was prohibited before. Still, I prefer Multiply over Facebook. The good thing about the people behind Facebook is that they’re quick to move to adapt to the needs of their members.

No, ABS-CBN is just looking for yet another business opportunity where they can squeeze juice from. That could be the reason why they’re breaking up with multiply…

Another business failure for the ABS-CBN company.

The problem with multiply is that their framework is weak. That’s why they can’t adapt to rapid changes in technology. That’s what happening right now to friendster. Poorly coded site…

Bakit kaya maraming tao ang nagiisip na mawawala ang facebook. matalino ang mga tao behind them compared sa multiply at kung ano ano pa. Tska hndi sa packaging bumabawi ang facebook. sa internals ng site nila. Scalable ang framework ng facebook compared sa friendster at ibang SNS sites tsaka madali sila maka adapt. Magagaling programmers nila

Di ko alam kung bakit nag invest ang abs-cbn sa site na yan… maxadong pangit ^^ bitter talga ako

ganyan naman ang technology, palit lang ng palit(fad)..
may mas maganda kaysa sa isa dun naman….
kahit tambakan mo ng sandamukal na advertisment ang multiply eh kung wala naman mag log in na user its useless……
dahil ang tao tinitingnan ang features hindi ang advetisment…
a reality we must admit… baka ang myspace naman ang susunod dyan….
naging sucessful ang facebook because of chat and GAMES(especially farmville and pet society), at kung meron bago sa lalabas na social networking site na mas marami pa feature sa facebook…
pustahan mawawala din ang facebook(weather weather lang yan!!!)….

I remember when the deal was announced, ABS was pulling user clips off YouTube. They had bigger exposure there and most industry people at the time saw that Multiply wasn’t the right partner. Dumb move ABS.
