Taobao has quietly launched its social network “Tao Jianghu”. “Tao” is from “Taobao”; “Jianghu” is the milieu, environment, or sub-community, often fictional, in which many Chinese classical wuxia stories are set. So far, I can’t see any links on Taobao.com to this SNS site.
The platform is built by Comsenz which just looks like another clone of Facebook. “Tao Jianghu” is a community for online shoppers to communicate and make friends with each other. There are 2,504 registered users so far.
