Just look at these numbers!
- Of the more than nine million registered users of Multiply, 2.2 million are Filipinos, outnumbering even nationalities with a bigger population base such as the United States, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brazil.
- Of the two million photos uploaded to the Multiply every day, one million belong to Filipinos.
- Of Multiply’s monthly page views of 1 billion, close to 30 percent are by Filipinos. This translates to 335 million page views a month by Filipinos alone.
Filipinos have this insatiable desire to connect online, and that didn’t pass notice with the president and founder of Multiply, Peter Pezaris. He is in the country for a week to personally launch Multiply Philippines.
Pezaris noted our penchant for taking pictures, for connecting with friends and families across the ocean, and wanting to know who your friends’ friends are. They’re exactly what Multiply provides, according to Pezaris.
Friendster, another social networkins site, also notes our strong presence on the web. According to Friendster’s global marketing VP, the biggest percentage of users are Filipinos (39%).
As Tessa Salazar puts it Filipinos are prolific social networking animals. Meeeow!
