About Weibo Corporation
Weibo is a leading social media for people to create, share and discover Chinese-language content. Weibo combines the mean of public self-expression in real time with a powerful platform for social interaction, as well as content aggregation and distribution. Any user can create and post a feed of up to 140 Chinese characters and attach multi-media or long-form content. User relationships on Weibo may be asymmetric; any user can follow any other user and add comments to a feed while reposting. This simple, asymmetric and distributed nature of Weibo allows an original feed to become a live viral conversation stream.
We enable our advertising and marketing customers to promote their brands, products and services to our users. We offer a wide variety of advertising and marketing solutions to our customers, ranging from large brand advertisers to Alibaba/e-commerce merchants to small and medium sized enterprises to individuals. We generate a substantial majority of our revenues from the sale of advertising and marketing services, including the sale of social display ads, promoted feeds and event-based ad solutions. We have developed and are continuously refining our social interest graph (SIG) recommendation engine, which enables our customers to perform people marketing and target audiences based on user demographics, social relationships, interests and behaviors, to achieve greater relevance, engagement and marketing effectiveness on Weibo.
