On Oct.27th, 2009, Renren.com announced the official launch of its Renren Connect, which allows users to port their profile data to third-party web sites. The company is announcing several excellent launch partners, including Tudou, Hudong, Mafengwo, Dianping, Xcar, Yesky and others. “Renren.com aims to provide the underlying services - a platform - and offer access to its pool of members, gathering together the power of the internet,” said Joe Chen, chairman and CEO for Oak Pacific Interactive.

Through Renren Connect, users can easily log into partner sites using their Renren.com account and receive interesting and useful information. They can share actions on partner sites with their friends back on Renren.com through feeds. For the partners, their websites will get more user visits through the “News” and “Sharing” features of Renren.com. The number of registered users for third parties will see an increase of 30-200% as well as 15-100% in UGC. In terms of user registrations and the richness of content, Renren Connect promotes positive development for partner sites.

Alvin Chiang, CMO for Oak Pacific Interactive told reporters that Renren Connect is not just a new technology, adapting to the development of China SNSs; it is also part of Renren’s development strategy, seeking to provide users with the richest communications experience through its work with partners.

Hudong.com and Tudou.com both have a strong relationship of cooperation with Renren Connect. They believe that Renren Connect is a milestone for website development. Renren Connect gives users a true relationship between partner sites and social attributes. When the users log into the partner sites, they will share interesting information and videos with friends, attracting more users to view and spread it.
