Foursquare China Clone: Jie Pang

Like many other foreign Social Media platforms, Foursquare is blocked in China. (Check out Herdict to see what is blocked.)

The result is that people visiting with a non-China phone, such as me, can easily become mayor of many locations. That said, there are locally created options for people in China who are eager to Check In.

Among the current Foursquare clones in China are: Wan Zhan, Si Wang, Zai Nar, Bedo, Jie Pang, Da Zhong Dian Ping. In addition, similar services are coming online from: China Mobile, Tencent, Sina.com, Baidu.com. Renren.com, Kaixin001.com and Kong.net

A few days ago Jie Pang sent over some slides about their service and Jeremy Webb, a colleague at Ogilvy, did an interview with Jie Pang’s founder, David Liu (All below)

h/t to Tim Ho for creating the Foursquare China badge.
