    Hi Richard,

    Yes, it’s already becoming powerful traffic generators in Japan. I just read an article that a new mobile only SNS site “mbga.jp” just had 200 million page view in a day.

    I think what’s more interesting is the mobile aspect. Services like this (and the social space in general) could be fantastic traffic generators for the mobile carriers.

    Hi David,

    Yes, mixi is still running very strong by providing the kind of services that members want.

    Yahoo mobile and Yahoo Days (Japanese version of Yahoo 360) are gaining popularity now. I’ll share the information on these services when I find some numbers. :)

    Nice post Motoko. I think MySpace will have a tough time competing with Mixi especially since they don’t have the mobile part down. Mixi’s been doing social networking for a long time.
