There are many native Japanese users who have already joined and I am aggressively getting more. Japanese are already starting to move onto the new Japan-created mobile social network Line.Also, I plan on being very active with the users, so feel free to consider this the closest thing to a forum on JALUP. Start looking at some of the posts and comments by Japanese people on the fan page. Leave messages in addition to the “likes.” Even just a few words is fine. Don’t go too overboard, as the point is to try to develop friendships with these people, not collect friends like Pokemon. Its user base is growing rapidly from it’s launch date on June of 2011. And if you want to find Japanese people to become friends with, contact people directly through Facebook.Then the online service will find matching users based on various algorithms.
This is part of the reason why Mixi has always been a “don’t show any real pictures of yourself or provide any personal information in your profile.” The slow move to Facebook The Japanese story of arrival to Facebook is a bit interesting.
People appreciate it that much more when you actually respond to what they say, rather than just give a lazy thumbs up. ^_^ ————————— I’m aware of how ridiculously corny this sounds, but it is similar to the messages I used to constantly receive on Mixi, and it works. It is hard to keep up with friendships when numbers grow too high. I don’t know the numbers, but I have a feeling that a lot of users are already leaving Facebook usage for Line usage (though there are some differences in what Line actually does, which may eventually change to catch more Facebook users). —————————————– Note: Please do not use the comments section of this post to give out your personal info and ask to meet Japanese people.
And in case this isn’t obvious, make sure your messages are in Japanese! After liking and messaging on peoples’ posts, send them a friend request, and make sure to include a message in Japanese. I love Japan and you look like a very interesting person, so I decided to message you. Of course don’t expect every friendship to work out. I’ll eventually write up an article on Line to keep up with the latest tools. How have you used Facebook to make Japanese friends and study Japanese?
The location of the date is also affected by the spontaneity in that it is often a neutral and public place so that both parties feel comfortable.
Family and friends have been declining in their influence over the dating market for the past 60 years.
