Sina Weibo recently opened its office in Singapore, making enterprise Weibo verification available for Singapore companies. Qualified personal Weibo account could also apply for verification.
It is said by Jimmy Li, in charge of Weibo Trends Media in Singapore, that Singapore ranked the fourth in the number of registered Weibo users. Sina Weibo has 1.5 million registered users and 800 thousand daily active users in Singapore. Although most Singaporeans use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, Li said Sina Weibo was not going to compete with these social networks. Sina Weibo would target Singaporeans who speak Chinese, which occupies one thirds of total Singapore population. It sets the goal to achieve 2 million registered users and 1.5 million daily active users in Singapore.
Sina will also promote its new chat product WeMeet, and plans to enter Indonesia market in December 2013.
Sina Weibo enterprise accounts verification resembles Facebook Page. What different is that Sina Weibo requires some documents, such as certification for registering Weibo and enterprise Logo documents. Besides, if a person is famous and well known in a field, he or she could also get Weibo account verified.
Sina offers personal account verification in 34 industries, 542 categories famous people and elites. For personal Weibo account verification, you need to bind your cellphone, and have an image for your account, with no less than 30 followers, and your posts should reflect your true self.
