New Microblog service, named JJaku







DelineJY is preparing for JJaku.com now. JJaku is almost ready to open Beta service.
It is a Microblog but it’s using brand new process of Group networking.
INCS (Inverse Creating Networking System) is the process. We first got the idea from yammer.com and tumblr.com.

SNS including Twitter, all need to make Follower or Following. At JJaku, you become a Follower and Following with everyone from the beginning. As for this business model, the first step is what we called Group based. Which means you should choose certain group when you register and everyone in that group will Following you and you will become a Follower of them automatically as soon as you register and choose a group. For example, if you choose your group as Sports group when you first register at JJaku, everyone who register in Sports group will view your post and you will also view their post too.

If you receive any advertising that you don’t want to receive or if there’s someone you don’t want to socialize with than you are able to block that member. Once you block the member, you will not receive their post anymore. And your post will be unable to view from them. Of course nobody will know who blocked them and I will also never know who blocked me.

We evaluate each posting how valuable that post is. If my post was valuable to many other people, I will get favorite point. If I get more favorite points, it means I am a member who posts many valuable postings. On the other hand it’s like you have a lot of Followers on Twitter.
We think each post should get their own values.

Users will create their own network from that basis. Anyway microblog is where people network more casually with simple and daily posts rather than something private.


You will receive everyone’s post and your post will send to everyone in your group. It is your opportunity to become popular member by posting valuable posts and create large network of your own by blocking someone and you been blocked.
Why don’t you try it yourself at the beta test? Try how JJaku is so effective and easy to create your own network so simply!



JJaku.com will start the beta test on 2009. Mar. 02. We are not sure what US market will say about it. But we are proud to our self that we are still keep on trying launching our product in US market. Our success will remain as a one great case if we success. Even if we fail, it will be still become a great lesson.

Crumbling walls

 Boundaries are hardly there between web service types. Our office is very quiet because we recently discovered Tumblr, which is almost identical to the fully developed version of Plugat. How did we miss Tumblr? Our approach to Plugat was from bookmarks. However, Tumblr approached to the same type of service as a simplified blog. While we were searching for evolved bookmarks, Tumblr was providing the same service with 'blog' written on its title. Next generation bookmarks and simplified blogs turned out to be the same thing..

Social networking + a purpose.


What a boom social networking had created. The impact of MySpace and Facebook was enormous and the ways of using them were countless. Not only did individuals use the services, but also businesses took great advantage of them.

And now, social networking is everywhere. Whether it's a photo service, video service, or a web bookmark, users are given the ability to communicate and discuss with others. At this point, a website that requires registration, but has no social networking feature look like black and white television (unless it's a banking or similar service of course).

To join the social networking business at current stage, a service would need more than just social networking features. Just sending messages and visiting profiles are not enough to keep users coming back. As a good example, I hardly ever visit Facebook anymore but go to MySpace, Flickr, and Plugat (besides work purposes) everyday. Because I produce music (occasionally) and love photography, I visit MySpace and Flickr to keep up with what other people similar to me are doing. My bookmarks and favorite web contents are collected at Plugat so I have to access it for my convenience. However, Facebook doesn't really provide a purpose for visit anymore. It was a great service to find friends that I had lost contact with, but now I've found most of them and communicate through Google Talk. So the only time I visit Facebook is when my friends tell me about events that they had gone through and I want to see the pictures. This happens once in about two weeks.

A purpose for users to visit is an essential factor in web service as well as the social networking feature. With either one absent, the service will have a hard time. For users, everything is getting easier and more enjoyable. But for developers...

What should we call Plugat's service?

We're correcting bugs in Plugat and it will be up within a week.
But we don't have a name for its service yet.
Social bookmark was what we used up until now but the social bookmarking feature is just one of Plugat's features. I guess something more like 'social content box' would better describe Plugat.
