Weibo remains a key destination for the social media marketing budgets of global top-ranking brands, which bolstered its KA ads growth ahead of SME ads growth. Social media content saw continued improvement with MCNs doubling y/y to 2,600. Things to Monitor: SME ad revenue growth slowed to 14% y/y (vs. 35% in 3Q18) due to macro headwinds, gaming regulation and competition (more inventories).
