We wrote about microblog syncing service Follow5 which went online since 2007 discontinuing service early this month, well, it seems the company could have another shot. According to people familiar with the matter, Follow5 is currently in talks with several companies about selling the company with Qihoo 360 as one of the potential buyer.

Follows lets users let users sync their microblog messages onto all the other major microblogging services or social networking sites, including Twitter, Digu, Fanfou, Kaixin001, RenRen, Tencent Weibo, Sina Weibo, Douban, Plurk, Friendfeed and so on.

Qihoo360 approached the service for buying purpose as far back as 2009, though things didn’t go through then.
