Chinese Social Media

You can find Lehigh engineering across popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. But did you know we're an emerging presence on Chinese social media as well?

Lehigh is now part of several popular social media sites used widely in China, including Sina Weibo, RenRen and YouKu.

Sina Weibo is a microblogging website similar to Twitter and is considered the most popular social networking site in China. Weibo launched in 2009 and is used by over 500 million users who post an estimated 100 million messages a day.

Sina Blog is the equivalent to the blog service that hosts celebrity, company and educational blogs, including Lehigh University.

For social networking with a similar style to Facebook, most college students turn to RenRen. It has over 160 million registered users and boasts an active monthy user base of over 31 million users.

Looking for video? Chinese users look to Youku, the second most popular video website in the world (after YouTube.)
