Yesterday Oriental TV came to the Toodou.com office to produce a program about us. They will produce a 25-minute program that will be aired later this week at 7:00 PM. According to the producer, the program has the second highest rating in Shanghai, so lots of viewers probably.
Also the Toodou team was featured yesterday in a 4-page special in the Wai Tan Hua Bao (you won’t see me in the pictures, I was not there when the reporters came to visit), and the front page has a huge full-color picture of some of our team members.
This morning I watched the program that Dragon TV produced last Monday. I felt they did not clearly bring accross the message about what we are doing. One reason is that the item was only five minutes, and they also profiled one of our users during that time. I hope the other program they will produce with this material for CCTV will be better (at least it is longer, I think 15 minutes or so).
Many reviews on the web as well, but most are in Chinese. I came accross this one in English yesterday on techcrunch.com.
The site keeps growing. Lots of good new video’s and podcasts were uploaded again, and the amount of users keeps increasing. It’s great to see that when some people have an idea and manage to implement that in the right way, that it can be so successful so quickly – and all of that without spending one penny for marketing!
