Zorpia Launches Social Network Site for China; Company Plans to Launch More Than 22 Social Networking Portals Worldwide

Zorpia Launches Social Network Site for China; Company Plans to Launch More Than 22 Social Networking Portals Worldwide

HONG KONG, Aug. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The battle between social networks is unrestrained and showing no sign of slowing down in the next 24-48 months. The "Social Network Wars" have begun and Zorpia Ltd. is on a quest for global domination. Today the company announced the launch of its new Chinese social networking site at Zorpia.cn ( http://www.zorpia.cn/ ).

Zorpia's expansion into China is the first step in an aggressive global expansion plan of taking on 22 additional markets including the UK, Australia, Canada, India, Taiwan, Japan, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. While the English version of the Zorpia website ( http://www.zorpia.com/ ) adds thousands of new users daily, the Chinese version of the Zorpia website is expected to generate millions of new users pulled from mainland China.

"We see Zorpia.com as the first 'Global Social Network,'" founder Jeffrey Ng said.

"Zorpia was initially designed for sharing non-personal photos," said Ng. "What we discovered is that people actually preferred sharing personal photos while making friends with one another. We plan to leverage our technology platform to launch multiple niche social networking sites, as well as a business network site and a social network for mobile technology users -- to go beyond being a networking site for teens."

According to eMarketer Research, companies around the world plan to spend an estimated $2.5 billion on advertising on social networks by 2010, an increase of $350 million from 2006. (Source: http://www.emarketer.com/Article.aspx?1004077 )

"We're not just about building online communities," said Ng, "In addition to beefing up our features and tools, we are proactively seeking new opportunities to generate additional revenue streams through our network of portals. Social networking is not a fad that will disappear anytime soon."

In the past year, Zorpia.com has added more than three million registered users. The site hosts over 13.6 million photos (over 20,000 new photos are being added daily), and receives more than 3.6 million page views daily.

About Zorpia.com

Founded in 2003, Hong Kong-based Zorpia provides a social network community where users share unlimited photos, post journal or forum entries, and customized personal profiles. Zorpia Ltd. is a privately owned company and is currently seeking venture capital to expand operations worldwide.
