Last weekend, word got out about Zeen, an upcoming magazine discovery and creation service developed by AVOS, the company formed by YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. But that’s not the only service AVOS has quietly launched recently. Some time last week, their new site, Mei.fm, surfaced.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
Mei.fm, which is mentioned as a separate project on the AVOS website, is similar to services like Pinterest and Clipboard, enabling users in China to collect and share things on the Web that they find interesting.
Judging from the team page, there are 14 people working on Mei.fm already.
An AVOS representative told Tech In Asia reporter Rick Martin that Mei.fm was initially forked from Delicious and launched as a separate product in beta on April 1st. The rep added that the service looks a lot like Delicious now, but, as it is built with Chinese users in mind, will likely end up looking different from Delicious.com in the future.
By the way, Hurley will also be speaking at The Next Web Conference 2012 later this month. Boy do we have a lot to ask him now.
