Will Cyworld take the English speaking world by storm

July 28, 2006

If you haven’t heard of Cyworld yet, it’s basically the South Korean version of MySpace, sort of Blogging come social networking (although I’d note it’s more blog like that MySpace)…and it’s come to America with the launch of an English speaking version. GigaOM has more, but off the top of my head from the days I use to do these figures for the Blog Herald, it has something like 30 million users in South Korea, and even more in other Asian countries as well….basically it’s bloody huge, question is: will it take off in the English speaking world? At this stage I’d put money on it, this is huge already and it’s going to get bigger. Look out MySpace 🙂
