Xiao Nei – Now Available In English!

Xiao Nei (校内) is a popular Chinese online networking website.  Users can find old college buddies, chat online and see what their friends are up to.  You can write on people’s walls, send them messages, join various networks and there are even fun applications you can install.

Sadly, Xiaonei.com is only available in Chinese but don’t worry if Chinese isn’t your forte.  One bright Harvard University student, Mark Zuckerberg, has copied this idea into English and called it Facebook.

It was initially only available to Harvard University students, but it is now available to everyone.  You probably haven’t heard of Facebook yet, but WoAi predicts that it will become very popular one day!

    Chineses don’t invent, they follow. Baidu is a copy of Google, and Xiaonei is a copy of Facebook. Yeah ok, why not, I’ve got nothing against it.

    @Cat – I’m glad you found it funny. A few people didn’t quite understand the humour of this post!

    Wow…This is really offensive, because actually, xiaonei actually copied Facebook. It’s pretty outrageous that you think Facebook copied Xiaonei. The chief founders of Facebook plan to file a lawsuit against Xiaonei for copying them, and Xiaonei might go down soon. :)

    don’t believe the facebook propaganda Lena!

  10. CP says:

    @Lena: Bring it on! Then we can watch Google Mk. II as the Chinese mainstream press accuses Facebook of meddling in the Chinese internet which has developed traditionally and openly over many years etc. etc. zzzzz.

  11. WoAi says:

    Sigh. Yet another air-headed bimbo who doesn’t understand sarcasm and irony.

  12. T. says:

    @WoAi – even if she didn’t. . . offensive? really? who gets OFFENDED about an erroneous post?

  13. WoAi says:

    @T – Not only offended but outraged as well. OUTRAGED! It’s not like Lena invented Facebook. At most I think she should be mildly amused. But there you go. Some people have very little happening in their lives.
