Google Fensi: What is it?

A few months ago I received an anonymous (and thus potentially unreliable) tip from a "Trusted Tester".  He told me of a service coming soon that he would only describe as a mix between "MySpace meets Microsoft Live".  I still don't know what that would be -- maybe he was talking about Fensi?

Another good idea put forth by Philipp Lenssen suggests the word "Fensi" sounds similar to the Chinese word for "Fans".  What do you think it could mean?
