Xanga subscribes to Quantcast - here's the public visitor results.
Daily people visiting on Friday the 6th dropped from 80,000 to 1,039 - a little more than just 1% of who was here just prior to relaunch.
More disturbingly, the 1,039 on Friday is a drop from 1,894 on Wednesday - the new site is already trending downwards, though a few days may be too short to discern a true trend.
Where's everybody? This place feels like a desert island - no longer the thriving metropolis it was of old.
Where's the portal page drawing us altogether? Where's the compass to old stomping grounds?
Xanga Hong Kong was Xanga's hotbed. But it appears that little thought was given to migrating its users (from http://help.xanga.com/topic/premium-account-that-was-not-migrated):
I found that you are answering the question here. I have paid $48 and I would like to have my blog back at email@example.com. I desperately need you to help.
I really have no idea about xanga closing now as I am in the Hong Kong xanga which there are actually no notices shown at the front page until last Sunday. However, it was already too late for me to do anything.
The blog is really important to me as I have written letters to someone I love on the blog for 3 years. The "letters" are never seen by the person but I plan to show him in a right time.
I hope you could help to save them. Thank you so much.
