Mobile SNS site gains 100,000 members in 1 week
Gree is the third most popular PC-based social networking site in Japan after Mixi and Frepal and has around 400,000 registered members. Gree teamed up with Japanese operator au to launch EZ Gree – a mobile version of the service.
The service launched on 16th November and today au announced that EZ Gree had gained 100,000 members (including PC members accessing their accounts from their mobile) on the 23rd November – just a week after launch.
Mobile communities are definitely becoming a big thing in Japan – I posted a couple of weeks back about how the mobile gaming community Mobagetown has managed to sign up 2 million members in 9 months. au has EZ Gree, Softbank has Yahoo! Days – it will be interesting to see what DoCoMo has planned for this area.
