Yahoo China on Tuesday launched a new blogging and networking service, in a move aimed at diversifying its revenue streams as it steps up expansion in the world's second-largest Web market by subscriber numbers.

The Yahoo Space (i.yahoo.com.cn and club.yahoo.com.cn) service includes blogging, photo gallery, online networking and other interactive functions for Yahoo users, Yahoo China said in a statement in response to a Reuters enquiry.

There are several blog services already active in China today. One of the biggest established Chinese blog services is Bokee [bokee.com]. They completed a deal with the people at SixApart [sixapart.com], the makers of MovableType, to provide Chinese language blog software/services last year.

Is it too late for Yahoo China in this market, or is there still a lot of room to grow?

Not too late for Yahoo IMHO.
They need to get into the blog play regardless since every portal site has blog. It is a way to make the user sticky and of course to diversify revenue as indicated.

There are many pure play blog services as well, too many. A consolidation may be in order in time to come. I'm quite sure Yahoo has a high chance of being around after that.

Have there been any reports on the uptake of this new blog service at Yahoo China? It may be too early to tell, but I wondered if they've kept up their momentum.
