How Did 9GAG Started?
According to 9GAG, their website has 80 million unique users each month all over the world. But how did a top comedy community online, not just in Asia but in the world started?Back in 2008, Facebook was still not very popular in Hong Kong and people shared funny content mainly through email and messenger. Ray Chan, one of the founders, decided to create a fun side project that could simplify the sharing process, 9GAG.
- It was like a personal project. We didn’t expect anything. We were crazy, but not crazy enough to think that this could become like a real business. We created 9GAG just to solve our own problem.- Ray Chan
