This might be fun, but I can’t get it to work in Chinese on my Mac. : ( I can use the English, however. It’s called woocall (available in both English and Chinese), and has been in beta at Sina for the past few months. Woocall, as Jason reminds me below, is similar to Gabbly: it allows you to talk with other people who are at the same website as you. It was apparently a big hit on Sina’s World Cup page, and is also available to discuss the hit TV show Supergirl. It has its own woocall blog, and describes itself thus:When you are watching the world cup by yourself, are you the only
one in your living room cheering or sulking over a loss with some
liquor? When your favorite television star is killed off on the
silver screen, are you the only one banging on the TV and yelling? When you read about David Beckham’s affair with the nanny, did you hope to yourself that Posh becomes available?
Do you want to talk about it?
