The Beijing News, 3/22/11
Jingwei.com, an SNS aimed at business professionals created by Beijing-based holding company Oak Pacific Interactive and Chinese online recruitment site Zhaopin, officially launched today.
In closed beta since earlier this month, registration on Jingwei is now open to the public; adding "friends" on the new site requires an "introduction" from a mutual acquaintance of both parties.
Jingwei spokesperson Shu Wei said the site will host "Company Day" events beginning in April, allowing employees from global Fortune 500 and well-known domestic firms to 'mingle' on companies' designated pages on the site.
