Habbo stemmed from a 1999 hobby project by creative designer Sampo Karjalainen and technologist Aapo Kyrölä entitled Mobiles Disco, for a Finnish band.
It was a virtual chat room running on Aapo's Fuse technology. It launched in August 2000 on the ISP's web portal.
This is a very important market for us and we expect Habbo Hotel to be a big success there, with many teenagers joining to converse with friends, meet people with similar interests and enjoy access to the global Habbo Hotel network.
Our launch in Turkey is the next big step on our global roadmap." Habbo's main feature is the "Hotel", and consists of a client made using Adobe Flash technologies.
Users can also choose from pre-made room templates, or create their own.
Guest rooms can be created by any member and can be locked to allow access only to specific users or password holder.
Public Rooms are rooms which are available to all members.
The challenging Chinese market and high operational costs led to the decision of closing the service.
Customers in China were redirected to other Habbo communities.
The website is owned and operated by Sulake, a Finnish corporation.
The service began in 2000 and has expanded to include nine online communities (or "hotels"), with users in over 150 countries.
