Weibo

I'm quite busy these days because of decorating and editing my WEIBO a.k.a 新浪微博. It is a Chinese microblogging (weibo) website. Akin to a hybrid of Twitter and Facebook, and it's one of the most popular sites in China.


Sina Weibo implements many features from Twitter. Users may post with a 140-character limit, mention or talk to other people using "@UserName" format, add hashtags with "#HashName#" format, follow other people to make his/her posts appear in users' own timeline, re-post with "//@UserName" similar to Twitter's retweet function "RT @UserName", put a post into the favorite list, verify the account if the user is a celebrity. URLs are automatically shortened using the domain name t.cn like Twitter's t.co. Official and third-party applications make users able to access Sina Weibo from other websites or platforms.
Additionally, users are allowed to insert graphical emoticons or attach own image, music, video files in every post. Comments to a post can be shown as a list right below the post, the commenter can also choose whether to re-post the comment, quoting the whole original post, to commenter's own page.

this is how my weibo looks like. Is it ok? i spent so much time on it! especially the skin!

look who's this? It's wanwan! wanwan is a Taiwan's internet cartoonist, whose real name is Hu JiaWei. She's the author of "cannot go to school", "can everyday go out and play", "you don't need iron rice bowl"...etc. She even starring in " You're the apple of my eyes"!!! 

next, try and guess who's this. i bet you know him! do you saw him in the newspaper lately? I DO! they keep saying that his fans of weibo are increasing horrendously. and yes i admit that he got lots of followers, cause it's like over 5MIL!!! so WOW right? lolll

besides that, they've got QING.WEIBO and BLOG.SINA too! it's lil bit confused at first, but qing.weibo is almost same as weibo. qing.weibo is like our blogspot or you can say it as DIARY. so you can chose to post long essay or just a picture with a few of sentences. i think qing.weibo is the combination of twitter and blog... 

if you feel like signing up too, please log on to Weibo and blog.sina. or try to google them for more details. Hope you have a nice day! any things you want me to share with? feel free to leave a comment! :)
