Sina Weibo and Social in China

Meet the man who became famous in China after his phone was stolen out of a New York bar. Hear from the girl who's teaching Chinese youth to understand boogers and earwax. In China, as in many countries, social networks play a critical role in the culture. The microblogging service Weibo functions similar to Twitter, featuring hashtags and a 140-character limit. However, in China - where a character can represent a whole word - the amount of content conveyed is much greater.
