Today, J-Magic[J] CEO Takuya Miyata[J] (@takmiyata[J]) unveiled that he had joined Japan’s largest social network service company Mixi[J] as an employee working with the Mixi business department.
As reported here on Asiajin, J-Magic handed over their breed-winning business of the face recognition mobile app to Mobile Factory last month, and they have been said to shut down all business very soon. CNET Japan asked them how they would be running themselves[J], but no comment was given on that.
Here’s an English translation of what he has posted on his blog:
Besides having announced in our press release that we handed over our mobile app business to our partners, we decided to cut down or close the other all business. We all thank our shareholders, our partners, our clients and all whom may be involved for their support.
And please excuse me my impoliteness that I tell you suddenly that, I joined Mixi. Needless to say, Mixi is no longer just a social network service operator, but now leading this country’s entire Internet economy. By making the most of my experience that I’ve been working in Japan and abroad, I will do my best for the company’s further success. I appreciate your support.
