One way to tell if a western startup is really hot, could be just checking if it gets many copycats in China. It’s reported by BusinessInsider that Tumblr’s to raise $75 million to $100 million at a valuation $800 million or more. So fortunately or unfortunately depending on which side you are at, Tumblr has to be hot in China.

Here is a roundup of those copycats/likers.

Diandian, is said to be the best copy of Tumblr. Founded by Xu Chaojun who has an impressive career path, Diandian has raised $10million and claimed 1 million users by June. It is also the most controversial one, not because Xu is from Shanda which also launched Tuita, the competitor of Diandian, but also it is a project of Innovation Works which supposedly should spend money on real innovation instead of copycats. But Xu obviously does not want to be a copy of Tumblr forever, he said Diandian would walk on its own way with focus on localization and mobile usage.
