I am pretty well connected with the KM Community around the globe except in China.

Maybe that is about to change a little as I now have a Weibo account and a YouKu account thanks to Lesley Zhang.

Weibo is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. As of 2012 it had approximately 503 million registered users and 100 million daily tweets verses Twitter's 500 million users and; 340 million daily tweets so its not so far behind.

Not too surprisingly YouKu is the equivalent of YouTube. It is it is the second largest video site in the world with an Alexa ranking just after YouTube.

Am I fluent in Chinese? No! Lesley set them up for me and Google Translate is just about sufficient to see me through.

I have not posted a lot yet but then I have no followers. So to my 375 community members In China and the Chinese diaspora around the world - follow me and I will start to post.

Oh yes, Lesley has done one more thing for me. She has translated my Knowledge Cafe Tipsheet into Chinese. Drop me a line if you would like a copy.

A big thanks Lesley for all your help :-)
