仿佛一夜之间,夸夸群突然火了,有人为寻求认同,有人为取悦伴侣,“收费夸人”的服务亦应运而生,多个电商平台已上线“在线夸人服务”。但在业内看来,夸夸群终究只是一时的产物,并不能真正解决焦虑、缺乏认同的话题,难以形成常态,其目前的一些盈利模式也难以实现规模性放大。

Overnight “praising groups” became hot among Chinese netizens. Some people sought recognition and some people wanted to please their partners. Such paid praising services took off and many e-commerce platforms were launched online. However, in the industry's view, after all, these services for exaggerated or over the top compliments are only temporary. They can't really solve the problem of anxiety and lack recognition. Therefore it’ll be difficult to become a norm, with some of its current profit models to achieve scale expansion.
