CHINA - The next social media frontier.

After over 2 years on Twitter I recently hit a huge milestone - 200,000 followers. That might be a drop in the bucket if you’re Lady Gaga or Kim Kardashian, but I never thought that many people would be interested in what I have to say. Twitter has been an amazing way for me to reach out to others, and as a service it’s uniting people from all around the world. Except, of course, in a few countries where it’s banned. One of those countries in particular happens to have 1.3 billion citizens: China.

As an experiment back in October, I signed up for the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, a service called Tencent Weibo, and I was shocked at the results. In just over 2 months of using the service, I now have over 100,000 new friends in China. At this rate I imagine that this number will surpass my twitter followers within a few weeks. I really had no idea that there was such a huge crowd of people in China interested in the life of a high fashion model, but I’m very happy to have found them half the world away!

The Great Firewall Of China!  Weeks 11 #08

China’s Own Public Sphere!

 “Local social-media sites dominate the landscape—while Facebook and Twitter are fixtures of daily online use in the West and in other Asian countries, China has no access to these sites. In our survey, Chinese consumers identified the following social-media sites as their favorites: Qzone, which 44 percent of respondents said they use the most; Sina Weibo and Renren, each favorited by 19 percent of those surveyed; Tencent Weibo, 8 percent; and Kaixin, 7 percent.” (Chiu, Lin & Silverman 2012)

The Great Firewall of China is quite significant barrier as to how Chinese citizens communicate and receive information with respect to their own government and matters in the outside world, it is with this barrier that the lack of westernized social networking sites has allowed them to invest and establish their own ones so that they cater to their own market.

Social media users are quite young and rely heavily online communication to effectively learn issues which they facing in life to entertainment and chatting to their friends online, mostly it is their own local media like CCTV (China Central Television) is state owned and operated and considered to be too dull to gain entertainment and actual appreciation to use for informing themselves.

Weibo: Fast Facts
  • Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter, literally means micro (微) blog (博).
  • Unlike Twitter, the only microblogging platform in the US, China has several weibo platforms: Sina Weibo, Tencent Weibo, People’s Weibo, etc.
  • Fanfou is the oldest Chinese weibo service and was created a year after Twitter’s launch, in 2007.
  • Sina Weibo is the most popular platform, and with over 300 million registered users, it’s also by far the largest. (Twitter has 24 million.)
  • Most weibos also abide by the 140 character rule, except 140 characters in Chinese, by nature of the language, can often say a lot more than 140 characters in English.

Un vídeo especial protagonizado por Neymar Jr, Rakitic, Aleix Vidal, Ter Stegen y Vermaelen da la bienvenida a los fans asiáticos al Año del Mono La web y las redes sociales chinas del Club fomentan la participación de sus seguidores con contenidos y promociones exclusivas

Neymar Jr, uno de los iconos del actual Barça, es el gran protagonista del vídeo del FC Barcelona para felicitar el Año Nuevo Chino 2016. El jugador brasileño participa, junto a Marc-André Ter Stegen, Iván Rakitic, Aleix Vidal y Thomas Vermaelen, en una divertida campaña que busca la complicidad de los seguidores del país asiático, que celebran este domingo la llegada del Año del Mono, un personaje que simboliza la alegría, la creatividad y la habilidad.

En los últimos años el Barça ha apostado por acercarse a los seguidores de China a través de sus distintas plataformas digitales consolidadas en una web en chino (www.fcbarcelona.cn) y en tres perfiles sociales en Tencent Weibo, Sina Weibo y el servicio de mensajería WeChat. Serán precisamente estos perfiles en las redes sociales el eje que permitirá a los fans participar de forma dinámica en un concurso de la camiseta firmada que se ha usado durante el rodaje del vídeo de este año, así como acceder a contenido exclusivo.

Por encima de los nueve millones de seguidores, el Barça ha sido el Club que crecido más en China en el 2015, con más de 1,7 millones de nuevos seguidores, por delante del Manchester United (1,1M) o el Bayern de Múnich (800.000).
