Guangzhou based CityIN.com, a nicely designed new Social Network site is publicly launched today. Three interesting features, QQ IM Contact Import, QR-Code and User Taste Learning are integrated into this version:

1. QQ IM Contact Import
Contacts import feature is important to help users organizing and connecting with their friends on a SNS. Like many other SNS, the user in CityIN can import their contact from Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail etc. As the majority of Chinese use solely the local IM product – QQ, which has a proprietary protocol, CityIN is one of the VERY few, if not the only, SNS that support QQ contact importing.

2. The first SNS adopting QR Code Technology
The QR Code can be used not only to subscribe a RSS feed, but also to allow users to store social events information into their mobile phone easily. CityIN generates a QR code image for each user-created social events, so visitors just need to scan the QR image with their mobile phone camera, and at maximum 4296 English characters (which is more than 1000 Chinese characters) will be read and input into their phone.
