As I’ve reported in past, SNS services are really hot in Japan. While mixi went public with more than 7mil members, and Softbank to offer Japanese version of MySpace, there’s a new trend in SNS market in Japan.
At nanoty.jp, you can create your own SNS site for free. From mid to the end of October, more than 1000 SNS sites were created within 2 weeks period of time.
Most of SNS sites created using nanoty are for small and targeted markets categorized by interests and groups, i.e., music, sports, pets, school alumni, and cities. Some are family SNS sites where family members can communicate with messages and photos.
