One thing I definitely cannot share is the number of users, but I
wouldn't say we're small at all.

Honestly I haven't used the sites you mentioned. These are Multiply's
There are different relationship types (about 50) that describe the
relationship with your contacts. Such as father, fraternity brother,
co-worker, etc... You can send messages and post content to people in
your network described based on the relationship. For example "my
family members", "my friends and their friends", you get the idea...
The relationship graph engine can tell the shortest (most meaningful)
connection or all possible connections between any two people. It can
efficiently check if a piece of content is viewable by a user based on
what permissions the creator of the content gave. It's very flexible,
which is a great thing if you work in a startup and bizdev people throw
curveballs at you all the time ;-)
