  • 3. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "ranging from celebrities to the broad masses of consumers and a proliferation of the latter over the past 18 months."The brokerage said the shifting of Weibo's traffic from celebrity-oriented big KOLs three to four years ago to more grass-roots-oriented small- and medium-sized KOLs over the past one to two years have created new business models, making it feasible for smaller KOLs to monetize fan bases.For Weibo, the transition should aid Weibo's top-line growth through ads, value-added services and revenue-sharing.
