No Goodbyes, Just See You Soon

August 11, 2012

I've been using Multiply since the year 2005 (or 2006, maybe) and I definitely had my fair share of the so-called multiply hype. Aside from the fact that it became my online storage for old photos, I also gained a lot of friends from there. I was so saddened with the news that the management behind multiply will now be deleting all personal accounts on December 1, 2012 and will now go with the e-commerce format.

Here's the message from the management
I consider multiply as my second home away from Friendster during there lifetime of success and its my mini treasure box placed on the world wide web. Oh well, life is short and all we have to do is to go and just move on. I am still waiting for their toll for me to backup everything that I've posted because if not then I will just let everything drift away with my account. Yes! I have posted a lot of albums in there so imagine if I am going to manually backup everything, ugh!

Allow me to share some photos from my crazy life when I was a bit younger.
And a whole lot more, LOL! I even uploaded lots of edited photos and I even made an account for my multiply themes because I was making some theme back then using Mykonos and Avlack as my base themes.

Yea! Multiply and all those memories will be gone just like that.

    1. As for the e-commerce part, they will retain its status meaning if you are using multiply as a platform for e-commerce then you are saved.

  8. i haven't checked my multiply. ang weird lang, kasi nung uso ang multiply and some online sellers are using it to sell items, nagagalit sila banning accounts here and there. tapos they came up with the multiply premium for sellers and yun lang daw ang allowed to sell. and now this. oh well.
