Come December, the Multiply website I’ve come to love (and somehow forgot — what with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn now competing for our attention) will no longer host “regular” users — meaning those who use the site primarily for social networking purposes (you know, for storing vacation photos, “occasional” rants and even music.
Multiply started out like MySpace, Friendster and Facebook did — to serve our narcissistic tendencies and over the years, through no intervention of their own, evolved into the massive online market that it is today.
And now, the inevitable has arrived. I do have a personal account at Multiply but I also have a seller/buyer account because I used to do business there.
So that explains why I kept seeing options to “Export to Tumblr” and “Export to Blogger” recently.
I will miss my personal account though. I’ve had it for six (6) years. That’s an even longer time in Internet years.
