  1. 1. Week  of  October  10,  2011   Digital Report  www.asiadigitalmap.com                                                Since  2009   Sina  breaks  into  Social  TV  and  Personal  Broadcas<ng   (headline) Kandian is a new social TV service from Sina. Essentially, it’s a multimedia viewing and sharing service linked closely to Sina’s own Weibo platform. Users can upload or live-stream – in a manner similar to the Americam site, Justin.tv – and then share and discuss the content with friends. In addition to user-generated content, there are some proper TV channels on the site that can be streamed for free. The site is still in private beta.

According to these, Cyworld saw 15.9 million visitors in August. Facebook saw 16.3 million visitors and is reported to have grown 16 times on the previous year to 16.3 million visitors last month. But user base figures indicate that Facebook still has a long way to go. In comparison with Cyworld’s 25 million users, Facebook only has about 4 million to date (according to Social Bakers).

It may be temporary (there have been earlier blocks), but testing it with different devices always resulted in the same error message: connection expired. Blocks in China always come without any official public notification. When Google Maps updated to 4.70 for Android it was blocked too. The last time I checked Gmail on my phone, that was blocked too. Google faces a severe deficit of trust with the Chinese government. Source: http://techrice.com/
