Right on - thanks for the info.


Besides QQ, there are lots of companies have their own IM software.
I'm creating an IM system based on Jabber now.

QQ's invisibility to the western world is a quite interesting topic. QQ came out as a copycat of ICQ long time ago. Now almost every young internet user is using it, and QQ has stood out as the biggest Social Network in China (in the world probably?). It is so popular in China but you can seldom find its coverage on western press, surprisingly.

I agree with you, Brough. It is the Culture. I really think if the Chinese internet wants to go to global market, they should not use the 'Culture Difference' as an excuse any more.
