How to share a story on WeChat Moments?

Dear readers, Thank you very much for sharing China Daily stories with your WeChat, a popular social network app. Unfortunately, depending on the mobile explorers you are using, such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Chinese counterparts like Baidu, QQ or UC Web, the ways to share the news story on WeChat Moments differ a lot, from a simple one-click to a challenging posting-posting-deletion step. We can not provide one solution that works well on all explorers. Please let me know if you have one. Here's the perhaps most challenging step to share with Safari, in six steps. 1. Open the story with Safari, and then copy the link. 2. Open your WeChat and go to Moments (peng you quan in Chinese) in social tab. 3. Click the button in the upper right hand corner for a long time until you see a pop-up text box. 4. Paste the story link in the box and press Send. Now when you go to your WeChat Moments page, you can see the story published in the form of link. 5. Click the story link on your Wechat Moments page and it will open in WeChat. Then Click the button in the upper right hand corner and choose the icon Share on Moments to publish again. Great, you are almost there. 6. Please delete the first feed on Moments page so it doesn't have two posts of the same story.

How to publish your own articles, promotions, and invitations on WeChat using this cool new tool

If you want something to go viral in China, WeChat is your best bet. The messaging app and social network has become a focal point of daily life, and that includes being a major outlet for the app’s 468 million monthly active users to share and consume content. But how does that virality happen? Most Chinese mobile browsers come with two share functions specifically for WeChat: one for messaging and one for Moments, a stream not unlike Facebook’s news feed. Sure, you can copy and paste a URL, but it won’t be pretty and probably won’t garner much attention. These links show up in a similar format to Twitter cards – containing a title, thumbnail photo, and brief summary – that are much more shareable and visually pleasing. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll refer to these as WeChat cards. If you just want a one-off way to spread the word without creating an entire blog or website, there’s now a way to do that with a new WeChat app called Weitie (微贴). Use WeChat’s QR code scanner at the above link or search the account weitieme to access the app, which is housed in an official account. Several ideas come to mind for what Weitie could be used for. Show off an apartment you’re trying to sublet. Rant about a local store that scammed you. Find a buyer for that used bike that’s been collecting dust. Tell everyone about your recent vacation adventure. Or send out detailed invitations for your upcoming holiday party. Weitie is made by the same team that created Strikingly (hat-tip to Pingwest), a US-based website building tool. The app is all in Chinese for now, so here’s a quick guide with English translations on how to publish your own articles, advertisements, and announcements on WeChat. The tutorial Once you’re following the aforementioned account, you’ll see this dialogue in your chat. Click the left-most menu at the bottom of the screen to create a new Weitie, and choose if you want pictures and text or just pictures. For this demonstration, we’ll do pictures and text. Next, you’ll receive a message asking you what type of post you want to create. They are listed as follows: 1. A photo album with captions 2. Product display, for showing off items 3. An article, like a news story 4. A campaign, such as an invitation or announcement Despite the different options, they seem to more or less all look and function exactly the same. Perhaps this is something Weitie plans to expand on later. Type the number of your desired format and hit send. Keep in mind that if you can’t read the Chinese and get mixed up, the English version of WeChat allows you to long press messages and translate them into rough but usable English. Next, you’ll be asked to add a cover photo. Just hit the plus button and add an image from your gallery as you would if you were sending a photo to a friend. You can also skip this step by typing “1”. Note that this step bugged on me a couple times and I didn’t receive the next prompt. If that happens, just send the photo again. It won’t be added twice. Next you’ll be asked if you want to add an image in the body. I’d skip this step by typing “1” if you added a cover image, otherwise you’ll have two photos in a row. That brings you to the text input. Type or copy-paste one paragraph of your article text here and send it. From here, the app just alternates between adding photos and adding text, paragraph by paragraph. You can skip and add as many of either as you wish. Once you’re finished, just enter “2” and send, and the app will return a WeChat card linked to your finished article. Now that you’ve got a finished product, long press the card to forward it to another conversation. Tap the dots menu in the top right corner to view more sharing options, which include a URL for viewing in a browser and sharing to Moments. The only downside is that the randomly generated URL is under the domain, and viewing the official account will return users to the Weitie official account page. You can find your archive of homemade WeChat cards by clicking “我的微贴“ (my Weitie), right next to the button to create a new one. A couple more things worth mentioning. As far as I can tell, you can’t add active hyperlinks in the text, but it won’t stop you from typing in URLs. Finally, if you mess something up and need to start over at any point, type in “放弃制�000(yes, must be the Chinese characters).
