I would like to thank all who emailed me to express how important this community site is to you, and inspiring me to keep it going. Not only did you inspire me, but you motivated me to move forward with an idea I had months ago. And after one member suggested it in his email to me, I felt that now was the time to implement it.
I have created a fully featured social network on FAILipino.com
Although it is brand new, and still under development, it is ready to start taking in members.
I created it as a closed, private social network and community for us expats in Philippines. I know that many of you had expressed concerns about security and anonymity in the past. I do believe this is what we needed.
I am not going to take this blog down
for a while ever. But the very long term goal is to transition from this blog to FAILipino.com.
With all the new cyber-bullshit laws and criminalizing libel (which the stupid fuckers don’t realize that if something about someone is true, and it’s mentioned, it’s not libel, but they think libel is when a senator plunders, and people talk about it publicly online, it’s libel. Idiots!)
So we want to still be able to speak the truth without some butt-hurt Filipino politician launching a head hunt against any of our expat members to make an example out of.
We intend for the new PRIVATE social network site to be for current expats, former expats, and frequent visitors to Philippines.
YOUR security and anonymity in what you post and share is what failipino.com is all about. It is out of public view, only visible to individually screened, approved members.
- Each user has his/her own blog, published immediately by you, no waiting for admin approval
- LIVE CHAT (Facebook style)
- Detailed user privacy settings
- Facebook style newsfeed
- Create Groups
- Post photos and videos
- Plan and post Events
- Member profiles
- Add friends and favorites
- Private messaging
- Activity notifications
- Create public or private chatrooms
Like I said, I’m not going to take this blog down
for a while ever I’m just adding a private online venue for us to meet and feel safe for those that do not want their posts to be viewed by the public, only registered, screened, approved members. Over time, as the activity on this blog decreases, and the activity at the new site increases, we will simply redirect this URL to the new site.
