Japanese SNS Site Mixi Releases Chinese Language Version
I will be pleasantly surprised if Mixi gets any traction in China. China already has a competitive market for social networks and it’s not clear what benefit there will be in using an SNS that is popular in Japan (considering the enmity Chinese online users have for Japan and anything Japanese.)
Japanese social network service (SNS) site Mixi has released a Chinese language site at Mixiu.cn, reports Sohu. The site offers functions for blogs, photos, groups and messaging and is operated by Shanghai Mixiu Network Technology, the sole partner for Mixi’s China SNS service, said the report. Reports in February said Mixi planned to establish a Shanghai subsidiary to enter the China market.
