Alvin Hung is the Founder/CEO of GoAnimate, and the current Adviser at Wing Han Manufacturing. He has garnered controversy due to phasing out the GoPlus subscription, Social Media Features, expiring Free Plans for basic users, expiring GoPlus subscriptions for users, and phasing out non-business themes. He is currently migrating the website from Flash to HTML5 later in 2016.
