Attack of the ping.sg clone
I wasn't surprised when I learnt that someone from Vietnam copied ping.sg. Its just a matter of time before someone tried to copy it. In fact, I almost wanted to say "What took you guys so long?".
I know Uzyn wasn't quite happy that someone copied his work. But then, lets face it, in the internet world, copying is everywhere. When a website is successful, someone will try to copy it. Friendster, youtube, myspace, twitter..... they all got their own clones. And I'm happy that ping.sg reach this status.
The only thing sick is that, the copycat has no creativity at all. The entire layout is very similar to ping.sg. Login on the left, most popular on the top and shoutbox on the right. Hello..... at least change the layout abit lah.
But there is one thing about ping.sg that nobody can copy. That is the community. The community in ping.sg is very unique. Everyone is friendly and united. No matter how good you are at copying, there is no way you can create another community as united as ping.sg.
Anyway, thanks to the folks at Vietnam for their compliments. We are greatly honoured.
