The giants are having a tough time of “Growing Pains” too. After experience a fast growth of 60 million registered users in 2008 and 2009 , Kai Xin (kaixin001.com) now have found their loyal users are turning away, cancelling their accounts.

This is more of a working routine now in the world of SNS sites. Both Kai Xin and Renren copy their western counterpart, facebook.com. This is truth.
