Breaking News: Sign up for Sina Weibo with Facebook!
Sina Weibo announced the integration with Facebook so overseas users can use their Facebook account to register and login on Weibo. This service has been deployed first in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and will be gradually implemented in other countries. But if you are in another country you can circumvent this by going directly to the Weibo Hong Kong site (little tutorial see below).
You can check it out on the web version of Weibo for now and it will be available on mobile later. The full article is here (in Chinese).
Our team has tried this registration process and found it’s much easier then before where you don’t need to worry about verification steps via mobile phone anymore. Can’t wait to try it? Go to the Weibo Hong Kong site and get your Weibo account now!
And download our APP here to start using Weibo in English.
*click the grey button and you will see the pop up where you can choose to register via Facebook.
