TVN.hu is a Hungarian web portal offering several services, home of a vast amount of user-generated content. Its "flagship" service is xfree.hu
The TVN.hu company's balance has been deeply in the red for years now, so the sites are endangered. As they're not among the most popular ones (Alexa HU ranks as of 2016-01-17: 2112 and 404 for tvn.hu and xfree.hu respectively), they probably won't be bought by another company – but have a lot of content.
Interesting, however, that people actively use the sites even nowadays, they are still uploading content too.
The following are TVN's services that are interesting for an archivist, with content dating back to 2006. (Numbers as of 2015-12-26.)
Images. There are currently approx. 270,000 albums, with several (sometimes thousands of) images in each.
Blogs. In an unknown number of blogs there are nearly 4 million entries, according to the site's search engine.
List of a user's friends also runs under this domain.
Videos. Nearly 36,000 of them.
Questions & Answers. With nearly 55,000 questions, it's probably the second after gyakorikerdesek.hu.
A public short-message board, like a microblog. Nearly 1,100,000 messages.
A news aggregate site, with commenting feature. There are more than 270,000 articles.
Recipes. Currently ~4,200 of them.
"Community magazine". Tens of thousands of articles in eight categories.
Free webhosting on USERNAME.tvn.hu was discontinued on 2013-04-11, "after 10 years".
