Zorpia Friendster Xanga Webshot


Update: Read Zorpia Log In Problem and Tips.


'Friendster' + 'Xanga' + 'Webshot' + 'Pbase' = Zorpia

or in simple terms

'Social network' + 'Online Journalling' + 'Online Photo Gallery' = All in one! Zorpia

I just received a few invitation a few days ago about this new site. I soon learned that the founder, Jeffrey Ng (ICQ: 127174671 email: kitng@uiuc.edu) is actually a rather common guy, who like hot chicks, clubbing, swiming, you get the idea. Plus he is also the Vice President of Hong Kong Student Association (HKSA) in University of Illinois Urbana Campaign (UIUC).

Thing is, he is only 22 years old, just 2 years older than me. Yet he already have some sort of accomplishment. Zorpia was only launch like probably year end last year, not so long since Friendster. What's the latest news I really don't know. (Will go Google and look for Zorpia News)

I really wonder if his new webservice will be a success, it's been going on well now ever since he started on September 2004. But I only knew it yesterday. With the kinda service he provides, it takes up a lot of bandwidth and cost. I.e. all the picture viewing takes up loads of hard disk space and internet bandwidth. That would cost quiet a sum. This Zorpia isn't relying on advertisement, unlike Friendster. The only source of income would be that $10 for 10,000 points. I wouldn't know if there is a large community of people who would want to pay that amount of money for soemthing like that. Well, he does maintain the site on his own, probaly that would help saving on human resources. Maybe as time goes by, he would need to set up departments to help ease his task. Well, after all he IS studying Computer Engineering and Finance!

He sorta put himself on the frontline. Which I don't really think it's the best thing to do. Like for example, people can get his email address and ICQ number easily, and everyone knows about his real name, real life stuff etc. All this made you wonder why would any entrepreneur want to set up something with loopholes. One, this is probably one of his final year projects. Two, he just wants to impress others that he CAN do it.

All in all, I think all this online social networks just made online-stalking easier for freaks out there who got nothing better to do. *cough! cough!* I'm otherwise. ^^

Choice is always up to the user to judge whether to be or not to be a Zorpian! I am :p

ps. I am not judging, just some surface comments!
