  • Weibo is really a big deal if you want to make it in the Chinese market as a global brand. I work for Italian based social media analytics firm Fashionbi (http://fashionbi.com) and we recently also added Weibo on our service platform particularly cause of the reach it captures in the fashion and luxury segment in China!
