Baidu Space: Baidu.com to offer blogs
Search engine market leaders in China Baidu.com have said that they are soon going to launch their own Blogging service named Baidu Space.
This service would be similar in way to Google Blogger and MSN Spaces. Cynthia He, a spokeswoman for Baidu said in a statement: “There’s a product named Baidu Space. I can’t describe the product or give a date, except that it will be very soon and we are very excited. But we’d like to keep a little mystery for now.”
This would make them the latest player in the Chinese internet service market to offer Blogs for their web users. They have formidable challengers in the form of services provided by players like Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, Bokee.com, Blogbus.com and BlogCN.com.
China is the second largest internet market in the world with more than 100 million web users. This give the IT companies an exciting market to target with their online services.
