Sina Weibo Fund announced that it has sealed a strategic cooperation agreement with WeMeet (Weimi in Chinese), a WeChat-like group messaging service developed by Hangzhou Kuyue Tech which Sina invested in (report in Chinese). Peng Shaobin, vice-president of Sina and partner of Sina Weibo Fund, is named as the executive director and CEO of WeMeet.

At the same time, WeMeet released a 1.5 version on both iOS and Android platforms, highlighting two features of WeMeet Group and WeMeet Radar that differentiate the service from Tencent’s WeChat. WeMeet allows users to share their comments and posts to Sina Weibo and WeChat friends.

In WeMeet Goup, users not only can see the latest updates of their friends in personal blog like in WeChat’s Moments, but also can browse friends’ posts in other public groups. Users can thus join the group of their friends if they are interested. In order to protect the privacy, users who do not want to share their comments in other public groups can go to the setting menu to hide such posts.
