Why would I want to use a Vietnamese web service
- Connection speed, especially for video streaming
- Local opportunities
What would drive me away
- Security, including revelation of my account information and spam
- Careless design
- Immature communities
I’m favoring CyVee because opportunities are real and more closely intact.
LinkedIn is terrific, but opportunities might come at a lower pace.
I’m currently very happy with Facebook.
If faceViet or yobanbe want to get me, they have to provide
- Professional theme
- English interface
- Strong personalization options.
It’s a pity I prefer utilizing my RSS Reader over social news sites such as Digg. Therefore, no remark just yet.
However, the news sharing platform of CyVee looks nice and could be very useful in promoting company brand like the way Tim of TRG is doing.
Additionally, if Vietnamese service provider can create something like StumbleUpon, it would make a hit and I’ll definitely consider.
Picasa has everything I need: 1Gb free account, folders, tagging and an uploader.
Is there a local site focusing on photos networking?
I’m enjoying sharing music on imeem. I am more into English songs. I like new age, hard rock and symphony and I’m not sure whether nhacso, Zing mp3 are rich of such genres.
Youtube is absolutely wonderful. I am amazed by its fast connection speed and stability.
Therefore, I don’t have the plan to move to Clip.vn just yet.
Has any Vietnamese vendor invest in this area?
I am maintaining my different blogs on self-hosted WordPress, Yahoo! 360 and Windows Live Spaces.
If local blogging providers such as ngoisaoblog, blog.com.vn want to attract me, they would have to ensure:
- High SEO compatibility
- High security, including spam protection and splog tracking
- Backup options and standard-compliant import/export functionalities
My clients in the US are using MSN Messenger. Most of my friends are using Yahoo! Messenger. For conference, Skype is just wonderful.
I don’t feel the urge of switching to Zing chat.
Apart from professional emails on my domain, I use a Gmail account to access Google services and a Yahoo! email to make it easier for my friends.
Any company is investing in providing free email service in Vietnam?
I use my portal for work purpose and netvibes is still number one.
Zing looks very nice, but I’d rather having something customizable.
I’m not having a real need of C2C e-Commerce, so no comment on this.
A vote for diadiem, simply because I need to find ways in my local areas.
I’d rather go out playing sports than wandering online, so good luck socvui, hihihehe and so on
In conclusion, the 2 local web services that I utilize are CyVee and diadiem
CyVee give me real local opportunities and diadiem is definitely more useful than its Google counterpart.
For others, if they can bring me real values I’m seeking…
