Mixi.jp Japan’s Socal Network

The most popular social network in Japan is Mixi. It has the usual components of any social network out there like a Diary, Community, Reviews, Music, and for Japan the most important…..a mobile component.

Myspace and the other giants are trying to bust in on Mix’s territory so it should be interesting if they can fend them off. I suspect they will be able to but it all depends on how the competition plays their cards. Customer service, ease of use, and interoperability with mobile phones, will be the major things they will want to focus on, imho.

This is not recommended for folks that don’t speak, read, write in Japanese or aren’t planning on studying Japanese.
