In China, Viadeo offers itself the ZaiZher application

by bold-lichterman

The professional social network Tianji, owned in China by Viadeo, recently acquired the start-up ZaiZher, which publishes an eponymous mobile application.


Founded by Robert Hsiung, the young shoot has developed a networking application based on geolocation.

Details of the operation, which took place last November, were not disclosed. However, the purchase amount could amount to 7 figures.

Bought in 2009 by Viadeo, Tianji is today LinkedIn’s main competitor in China. The social network now claims more than 8M users. 90% of the members are between 24 and 40 years old.

As a reminder, last April, Viadeo has raised € 24M. This acquisition should allow it to accentuate its mobile strategy in the Chinese market.
