What social networks exist on the Chinese internet, that allow people to meet and discuss things on any topic, or ask questions, like on Quora. I am learning Chinese and would like to practice. Any useful resources pointed out besides this question and answer site and dating sites would be greatly appreciated.

  • I guess somebody flag to close because this is opinion base. Although I will suggest something like Zhihu on general stuff, Douban on contents(books, music, movie, article) comments, but those are not a good place to learn Chinese, as it may contains confusing jargon and slang. – mootmoot Jan 15 '19 at 13:22

Check out 知乎 - just type that into google along with any random Chinese word of your choice, to find a load of threads containing that word - it's a great way to practice reading.

  • Thanks. What if I want to ask a question in Chinese about some topic such as life and culture? – Joselin Jocklingson Jan 15 '19 at 11:47
  • @JoselinJocklingson I am not user2137196. If you want to ask a question in Chinese, then you may register for an account on the website. Then, you ask a question in Chinese. People respond. 知乎 is based on the Quora model. So, you can tag your question with 生活 or 文化 or 生活方式. – Double U Jan 15 '19 at 12:04

百度知道 is also a Q&A website. You can find all sorts of information on there.


Quora -> 知乎 (share your stories that you just make up)

facebook -> 人人(almost died)

twitter -> 微博 (to be a VIP follower)

reddit -> 贴吧(not allow overseas)

youtube -> 优酷(You can even watch videos between ADs)
