Filaty, Arab File And Photo Sharing Service

| Apr 19, 2008 | comment 8 Comments

Filaty (which means ‘My files’ in Arabic) is an online service that gives users the possibility to upload files and photos quickly for online storage and sharing. The service, which was launched by Egyptian Muhammad Abdul-Shakour Arab (Division Designs), and developed with Syrian Ali Jabr (Reverya Web Solutions), is still in public beta.

The service is completely free for everyone, in fact you don’t even need to create an account, you can start uploading right away. It allows unlimited uploads, files of up to 100MB each, photos of up to 15MB each, and to make things even easier, up to 15 concurrent photo uploads.

The main target of this service are bloggers and forum dwellers who need a quick place to upload the photos and files they want to post and share with others, but of course it is not limited to them only.

The interface is only in Arabic for the time being; it is very easy and straight-forward, with a simplistic and clean design.

Uploads are reviewed by the site’s editors to ensure that the content guidelines in the site’s terms and conditions are respected and that no pornographic or offensive content is posted.

The only visible revenue source for the service for the time being is a set of Google AdSense units.

    hello there,
    my question isn’t about this service but how such service provider can have income in our arabic region with the digital gap issue and with companies reluctant to invest in ecommerce?
