なぜふぁぼったーは英語圏で負けたのか(インタビュー原文)

今年の7月にリリースされてから、早々に公式サイドバー入りするなど英語圏で圧倒的な人気を集めるfavstar.fm。ふぁぼったーは2008年の1月から英語版サービスを展開していたにもかかわらず、なぜ英語圏の制空権を得られなかったのか。たまたま見つけた海外のふぁぼったーユーザーにTwitterで直接インタビューしてみた。

@timhaines hey, can you stick a total number of faved tweets per user in favstar? That's main reason I check favotter, cos I'm vain.

@joshsharp Hi, I'm developer of Favotter. Can I ask a question about favotter and favstar? I wanna know some ideas from non-Japanese.

小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp Thx very much! so what do you think is the missing in favotter as a web service for English users? (as compared with favstar)

@ono_matope oh I love favotter, favstar looks a bit prettier, sometimes picks up favourites quicker. That's all really! I prefer favotter.

小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp Thanks: ) Aha, cool desing and quick pikking are important.(cont.)

小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp As a Japanese, I feel favotter's font expression as pop. How do you feel them? I consider font-colors should be change to mono?

小野マトペ @ono_matope

(140 chars is too short for Englishi beginners like me)

J# @joshsharp

@ono_matope no, I think fonts and colours are good already..

外人的にもフォントいじりはオッケーらしい。貴重なご意見 RT @joshsharp: @ono_matope no, I think fonts and colours are good already..

小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp Hmm. That's a relief : ) To be frank, so what do you think make favstar popular among English users unlike favotter?

2009-11-02 22:44:52
J# @joshsharp

@ono_matope to be honest, I think the default japanese text scares people away a little bit. Also it should have it's own domain name,

J# @joshsharp

@ono_matope rather than subdomain. Also it's hard to get popular within the big 'western' sites unless you're English-speaking and a part of

J# @joshsharp

@ono_matope it already. If that makes sense. It's very self-focused.

2009-11-02 22:53:04
小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp O.K. I understand. What favotter lacks most are 1: native and natural English support and 2: domain, aren't they?

2009-11-02 23:04:44
J# @joshsharp

@ono_matope exactly. And perhaps someone english-speaking to promote it.

2009-11-02 23:07:40
小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp Oh, yeah. promotion is important. I wanna send out news release to English media like techcrunch when I release next version.

2009-11-02 23:11:44
小野マトペ @ono_matope

@joshsharp OK, thank you for the answering difficult questions on such short notice. Your feedbacks are highly suggestive! I'll do my best.

@ono_matope yeah techcrunch etc is a good idea :) no problems, glad I could help!
