Xianz.com Goes Public

Published: 2006-05-26
Dubbed as a "Christian alternative to Myspace" the online community spelled Xianz but pronounced 'Zans' went public on May 25.

Similar to the popular online community Myspace, Xianz.com allows users to create an online profile and then communicate with other users through chat rooms and messages. Also similar to Myspace, Xianz will allow bands both upcoming and more established to promote themselves by creating a page in the community.

Up until yesterday (May 25) the site has been by-invitation-only with users needing an invitation to join the Christian based community but now they have opened their virtual doors to the public.

Though targeting the Christian market, founder Robbie Davidson insists that it's not a "Christians Only" site saying in a statement that, "all users are welcome, as long as they abide by site rules - which prohibit inappropriate language, impersonation, and lying or misrepresenting age, gender, and e-mail, to name a few." Davidson also says users will like the fact that the site is family friendly.

Some believe that if the site takes off with more and more users that its Christian nature will diminish but Davidson insists that won't happen.
