Detailed Description

Update

Studivz.net is very similar to Facebook, but primarily focuses on the German speaking market. The company was sold to Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH, a German publishing group, for €85 million in January 2007.

Other investors of Studivz include the Samwer brothers, founders of ringtone company Jamba (sold for $270M) and Alando (sold to eBay for $43M in 1999).

As of July 2008, StudiVZ has 9 million active Users in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The Users are on three Socialnetworks: StudiVZ (4.1M Users) SchülerVZ (4.9M Users) and MeinVZ (1.8M Users)
