Weixin App: WhatsApp’s Cousin

In China, there are different social media platforms than the ones used in the US. This is because the country has a strict firewall to the public in order to limit access to western media. For instance, Youku is the country’s version of YouTube while RenRen is seen as the country’s version of Facebook. One such social networking platform is one called Weixin (pronounced “way-shin”), which is similar to WhatsApp in the US or Line in Japan.
