How dose Chinese social media work? What’s the current status of microblogging service in China? These are probably the most concerned questions discussed in foreign Internet space. We’ve understood the importance of Chinese BBS which is still the key representative of Chinese online social media, but we have to see the rising power of Chinese microblogging.

“Twitter might be dying in China, but microblogging will definitely not. It will be well localized and boom in a Chinese style.”

That’s what I believe and I will discuss more in other posts later. Thanks to our brother site MOBINODE.TV, it just announced its own event and also a platform named NTalks to bring the startups, entrepreneurs, investors and grassroot all together face to face. The first edition will be hold at 28th March and the topic will be “Microblogging in China”. The highlight is that, for the first time, you might see all the Chinese microblogging service operators in one room!
