Pay sex chat
Any total stranger can friend these female bloggers, and send private messages or transfer money directly to their Alipay accounts within seconds.
Ant Financial, which owns Alipay, told Quartz that over 100 social or interest groups covering areas from internet to reading to parenting are now being tested in the “Circles” service.
‘I’d like to meet a man who is open, kind, sensual and laid back, someone with a good sense of humour and a glass half full attitude.’ It didn’t take long for the messages to flood in but my enthusiasm was dented by the standard of ‘millionaire’.
Most looked more like welders from Clacton-on-Sea than hedge fund managers from Knightsbridge.
‘Life is too short to miss opportunities and I believe in living each day to its fullest.
‘I am sociable, well-educated and enjoy a rich and varied social life, but would like to meet someone special who I have a connection with to share intimate moments and memorable times.
The “White Collar Diary” and “Campus Diary” groups were no longer active on Nov.
It is also essentially a loyalty program to online shopping giant Alibaba, because users’ scores go up if they pay or transfer money via Alipay frequently.
The wallet app, owned by Alibaba’s financial spinoff Ant Financial, publicly launched a new social media service called “Circles” on Nov. The “Circles” are social or interest groups that work like Instagram, with users sharing their photos or videos publicly with group members, with a big difference: In some of the most popular groups, only women can write posts and put up personal media.
All of Alipay’s 400 million users can join “Circles” groups, which include one for college students, another for white collar workers, and a third for Chinese citizens living overseas.
But as the “White Collar Diary” group shows, as a guy, I’m not allowed to post in it, no matter what my job is: The college group “Campus Diary,” which has been viewed by more than 14 million people within 24 hours of its launch, also allows only female users to post.
Any users can “praise” or “tip” under their posts after joining the group, though.
