MSN China unveiled “MSN Juku” – a microblogging service which MSN China claimed it not a microblogging service but a product of local innovation. Whatever.
Juku can be accessed here: http://club.msn.cn
The shout box is on the top allowing users to send a message of up to 139 characters (either 139 English characters or 139 Chinese characters). A timeline will show on the top:
It looks like Plurk to me. Users can also show the update to their Windows Live Messenger (by clicking on the smiling face icon on the lower right Juku homepage) which is very popular in China, especially among office workers.
I think the reason why MSN China doesn’t want to tag “Juku” as a microblogging service is, they have a higher expectation for this service. This site is also integrated with some applications (mostly games at the moment).
