You may know that social media market here in mainland China is growing fast and furious these two years, almost every main portal has its microblog service annouced, after the troika, Sina, Sohu, 163 (NetEase), now even QQ (Tencent), the leading IM/Online gaming service provider also has its own microblog, which benifiting from its IM platform by being embedded into a specific new version of QQ messenger for teasing the tremendous existing user base.
Meanwhile, several popular SNS attracts more than 50% of netizens spending time on clicking through those gossip/trumor links and addicting to "Social Games" like Happy Farm, which is so called a "National Vegeteal", or Business Tycoon Online, which was said has approached 20M RMB turnover monthly.
QQ Farm, another Happy Farm game hosted by tencent, has already annouced its 50M RMB monthly turnover last Q4.
Huge user participation brings huge possibility for product placement and contextual advertising, more and more international consumer brands are considering to involve into this grand campaign of new media era.
On the purpose of pursuing maximum profit, RenRen, kaixin001, douban all ask over 100K RMB from corporate/organization for public page or event hoster qualification, latest quote from RenRen climbs to ridiculous height of 600K RMB only for a fan page due to feast of EXPO , no promotion package offered as I understood, poles apart from Facebook, the latter holds more free and open style on business model, which will help agencies setup budget for client per approach and reachness more purposely and precisely. As to domestic SNS sites, it leaves a situation of "insider game" to the agency, diverting them from the real practical action plan to profitable quotes.
Brandigg has different vision and philosophy from most of the agencies, actually, Brandigg is not an agency, we love to grow up together with client's brand, sharing knowledge and experience we have, designing digital strategy, setup short term mark and long term goal, making revenue via variable models.
Above all our practice, we believe in sharism and credibility, which are the touchstone of all brands.

I remember it was my middle school age, say, end of 80's last century, that I found a grogeous and overwhelming picture from a foreign magazine, which was rare sources at that time, in my father's office. That unbelievable shot impressed me so much that the awesome agitative orange tone still keep flashing into my mind from time to time, influencing my design style and preference of color scheme.
This year, 2010, is not quite a peaceful year, from the very beginning, our mother planet became more and more disturbed, is that a indication of 2012? Hell knows!
Anyway, my friends stocked in Europe, good luck, hope you all back to home safely.
