With these features, the new service is expected to attract more business people to the website and thus bringing benefits to existing and new-coming user altogether.
“I believe that our new service can help our members actively interact and react to each other so that they can produce ‘User-Created contents’ in its true meaning. This will be a part of our value-added contents and at the same time benefit members” said Tae-Sung Kim, the executive vice president of EC21.
