Sign Up for Weibo/SINA tutorial

Hello there.. I know most of you would want to sign up in SINA or most commonly know as weibo because a lot of good stuff are there.. a new found HenWook Shipper CT wanted me to give this tutorial so I decided to make one for her and to you guys who would want to explore SINA.

My first tip for you guys is go and use Google chrome with built in translations so that you can partly understand what the people are talking there^^

And I’ll be doing this tutorial with screencaps~~ to help you go through it with ease~

Step 1: go to the SINA website

  1. Hi Jhengchie

    The tutorial is quality stuff, although the Sina website was changed a bit. My concern is that I’ve tried three times on three separate days to register an account with Weibo, yet it keeps asking for my mobile number. I prefer not to give it for now. I didn’t make any errors. Do you know if the number is now mandatory or perhaps you have a suggestion to bypass this? You have such a impressive blog. Thank you for your detailed work.
