Gmail Fever Hits China Social Networks

Kevin Wu from Pacific Epoch said “Thousands of Chinese Internet users are queuing for Gmail accounts up on a BolgChina bulletin board called “Googler.” Despite the fact Gmail users have to hang in limbo for a couple of day, the site has seen hundreds of applicants roll in. A group of Chinese Gmail account holders started the forum to spread Gmail invitations on regular basis. Users who receive invitations are then encouraged to send invitations to fellow bloggers. A number of local social networking sites, including UUzone, have also opened Gmail communities to get the ball rolling. ”
