Fanfou 饭否

Fanfou

Again, my apologies for posting an item that I haven’t explored completely, but I’m passing this along because many folks are trying to get a little more info on what’s going on in Tibet now that many outlets like Youtube appear to have been temporarily harmonized. It seems that one way to check a random sample of moods is through the Twitter clone, Fanfou. Dave over at Mutant Palm has done a bit of digging around and translating the posts he’s found on the topic here.

In case you don’t know about Twitter, it’s a blog service that is designed for miniature posts (<140 characters – think texting with slightly more punctuation). You subscribe to your friends’ feeds so you can find out within minutes when their cats have done something funny. Fanfou seems to be very similar for China-based folks. Here‘s a sampling of the posts you might find there.
