Sina Weibo... a new wave
Sina Weibo is operated and owned by China's Sina Group, or Xin Lang - literally meaning New Wave. Out of all the microblogging websites, Sina Weibo is one of the most popular sites in China, used by well over 30% of China's 650 million internet users.
Weibo offers a means for content aggregation and distribution. Any user can create and post a feed of up to 140 Chinese characters and attach multimedia or long-form content. User relationships on Weibo may be asymmetric; any user can follow any other user and add comments to a feed while reposting. The simple, asymmetric and distributed nature of Weibo allows an original feed to become a live viral conversation stream.
Media users use Weibo as a platform for publishing and distributing headline news and allows general users to be heard publicly and exposed to the rich ideas, cultures and experiences of the broader world
The figures speak for themselves:
- 600 million active users
- 132 million daily active users - with 91% of these on mobile
- 470 million daily video views
- 64,000 posts every minute
Promoting your brand on Weibo
Like Facebook, each user has a Page that displays the user’s profile, feeds and album. Weibo enables users to express and share their ideas, opinions and stories in the form of text and attach multimedia, including photos, music, short videos and blogs. The text in a feed is limited to 140 Chinese characters, similar to Twitter.
