Trending on Weibo

Although this is only a mini-mini-interview I conducted for One World Magazine (november 2015), I do want to share it with you anyway. Why? Because it’s the perfect opportunity to introduce Manya Koetse and her super cool website whatsonweibo.com.  She is a fascinating Sinologist and editor, providing cultural, historical and political insights into trending topics on China’s social media.

The first time I heard her speak was in a panel discussion on women’s rights in China and I thought she was by far the most interesting person on stage. While the others were talking in general about issues, she used all kinds of examples and little stories to illustrate her point.

Show, don’t tell… totally my cup of tea!
