Pacific Epoch has an interview with Jason Tian, founder and CEO of Heiyou.com, a Chinese social networking site that has recently launched a site for romance — Match100.cn, now called Baihe.com. Good basic info on growth of these kinds of services. …users upload photos and basic personal information and then contact each other. 96333.com is the oldest among them; that site has been around for five or six years. Pengpeng.com’s Marry5.com is the most similar website to Match100. In the future there will be more competition, but we are not worried. 96333 has registered only three million users since its founding; it took us only six months to reach that number. We also have a six month head start on Marry5.
