For those who have always wanted to follow Xin Hua on social media, but aren’t used to using Weibo, here is some goods news: Xin Hua now has a new official Facebook account as well! You can visit and start following her on Facebook below!
Here is her most recent Facebook post with a very special message for her new followers:
“On February 10, 2015, Xin Hua was born. Although her journey has not been without its share of obstacles, she still continues to grow! Currently, there are 36 days left until her third anniversary on February 10, 2018. Within this time span, Xin Hua has not only transformed from her original V3 version into a V4, but she has also transformed from being merely a childish and cute-sounding Chinese singer, into a charming, dual lingual Chinese and Japanese singer. What was your original impression of Xin Hua that you hold in your heart? Do you have any stories of how you first encountered her? And what’s your impression of her now?
“The Spring Festival is almost here, and during this extraordinarily beautiful transition between seasons, we hope that you will continue to accompany Xin Hua through life’s journey!
“Thoughts from the heart are like poetry, like flowers blooming through all four seasons. We hope that this will be something like Xin Hua’s first official birthday all over again since her debut, and hope that everyone will listen to each other’s feelings from the heart, and share that love to all!”
