Hmm, let me ask you a question? How many of you are actually WeChat User.? I was recently introduce to this app by my friend 2 months ago that they prefer to use this over another famous app because of many things that they can do. LAst week when I was in Penang, I saw all my girl friends talking over the phone like talkie and I thought it was another brand only realise that this can do a group talkie chat.. That’s cool, along I understand its one of “The New Way to Connect”.
WeChat was available to Malaysia market since last year June as this app started as early as Jan 2011. Since then they have garner quite a huge success with less than 2 years with 300mil download, that makes them one of the fastest growing app. Then last week they had a huge launching into Malaysia market and I only realise that this app is develop from China.
What is WeChat?

To my surprise, with the power of WeChat, so many of my bloggers friend got this invitation and to me its like huge massive Klang Valley bloggers gathering.
To get the brand pressence stronger in Malaysia market, they have appointment of Lisa Surihani and Shaheizy Sam as its Malaysian celebrity brand ambassadors. Both of them are strong in their social media pres sense too with strong followers.
