At the media conference for the PIE Channel with the press, including LionhearTV, on October 6, Home Buddies founder Frances Cabatuando talked about the growth of her online community.
Cabatuando highlighted her online community’s expansion through the group Home Buddies Hangouts, wherein they provide information regarding hotels, resorts, travel hacks, etc.
“Exciting na gusto ko lang i-share na from 3 Million, 3.1 Million na tayo. Just from Home Buddies, mayroon na rin kaming group, Home Buddies Hangout, so ‘yan ‘yung mga naghahanap ng stay-cation, hotel vacation, resort, or even travel hacks. So ang gusto naman natin ay matulungan ang ating mga kapit bahay. At siyempre, kung ang Pie-Channel ay TriDigital, ang Home Buddies magiging TriDigital nga din ba?”
Aside from her online presence, she also discussed what the PIE Channel could offer its viewers.
“Ang mai-ooffer po namin, first and foremost, yes, we are a digital channel so it means you can watch us on TV, on YouTube, on our website. ‘Yan ang maganda po diyan ay live na live po kami everyday. Kung may sinabi po kami, pwede po kayong mag-tweet or mag-comment at mababasa namin right away at makakapag-react kami.
“So ‘yung mga ka-TroPie natin na nanonood sa kanilang tahanan, ay parang nandito rin sa studio at kasama naming nakikipagsiyahan, kulitan, at chumi-chibog din po kami minsan.”
