Go forth, and Multiply!

No, I will not be talking about the Catholic Church’s opposition to the RH Bill. I’ll be talking about Multiply, a social networking site.

I’ve been a Multiply user since year 2005.  My first attempts at blogging were documented using Multiply. You can still view the site here. And then, in 2009, I used Multiply to sell vintage and pre-loved clothes.  The shop, cheesily called Just Got Lucky Shop (because I can sing “I just got lucky!” every time I hit a jackpot at the thrift stores) is still alive, albeit with very little updates the past months.

Now, Multiply will be removing its social networking functions and will be focusing on being a platform for merchants.  While I’m not sad about the news, I thought I might share what Multiply sent just in case there are people out there who have stored precious moments of their lives:

— “From December 1st, we will unfortunately no longer be able to support Multiply in its current form – notably we will be removing the social networking and content sharing part of Multiply (photos, videos, blogs, social messaging, etc.). We have decided to discontinue providing and hosting these services, as we have concluded that other Internet sites who are committed to social networking services will do a better job serving you than we can.

— For our existing users of social networking features, we will be providing easy ways for you to either download your stuff (photos, blogs, content, etc), or migrate it to other online services. We’ll announce the precise details shortly. It will be your choice whether to download, migrate or just let your content lapse (and get deleted).

— For our existing ecommerce users (both buyers and sellers) in Indonesia and the Philippines, there will be no action required.
— Regarding any existing Multiply Premium subscriptions we will refund any unused balance, and apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. Please contact customer service to request a refund. Note that this is for Multiply Premium, not the ecommerce related Multiply Trust product.”


I'd love to know what you think.
