  1. Wow! Renren is really amazing. Thank you very much! This is one of the best social platform that I have seen really. It is like a combination of TinyChat and Facebook. However I cannot do much since I don’t have a Chinese phone. I can still talk to people though.

    • Hello Baccich,
      It is impossible to register to RenRen with an ordinary mail since the system is asking you to register with a Chinese phone number. You will need to go to the website and use the google translator for translate it to English. You will see that you can register to the website with WeChat, QQ, Weibo, Tianyi, 360 and Baidu accounts. WeChat is the best option on here.

      Go to play store or app store.
      Install WeChat to your phone.
      Run WeChat on your device.
      Then go to RenRen’s login page which we have given above.
      Click/Tap on WeChat icon which is located just below of login button.
      Tap “+” icon on WeChat application on your phone.
      Tap on Scan QR Code and scan the qr code on for login.

      That’s all.

    • Hello Yinni,
      Yes, renren is the best way to make friends from China. However some people don’t know English on the website. Since you have Chinese origin, I believe the language won’t be a problem for you. You can register Renren with a WeChat account. If you don’t have one, you can have an WeChat account in a few minutes. WeChat is a messenger application which is working on iOS and Android devices.
