Chinese Giant Robin8 Launches New Global Mobile App for Social Media Users
Robin8, with Access to over 7 Million Users, Could Become a Global Micro-Influencer Platform for Sharing Content
Robin8, China’s leading Influencer search engine and marketplace, will beta launch its new global app in March. The Robin8 app is already a hit in China and will be available outside China for both IOS and Android mobile devices starting in March.
The Robin8 search engine has already profiled over 30 million people across 13 social networks and the Robin8 app in China has access to a network of over 7 million people that reaches over 3.5 billion people.
With the new global app, anyone can download the app and make money by sharing great content on Facebook. Additional languages such as Korean and access to other popular social media networks like LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter will be available in the coming weeks.
At the time of this announcement, Miranda Tan, Robin8 CEO and founder, said, “Imagine if Facebook and other platforms were to suddenly pay users some of the profits they receive, rather than retaining it exclusively for themselves?”
Miranda added, “Robin8 is a new wave of social media that offers users a decentralized data analysis to monetize their activities and take control over how their online personas and data are used. The current version uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to profile people, and the next version will use Blockchain to create fully trusted profiles. Each user will have access to content campaigns they can participate and be compensated for.”
Robin8 Beta Powered by Latest Funding; Focus on AI and Blockchain for Personalized Influencer Marketing
Robin8 raised VC funding, and recently completed an Initial Coin Offering, raising the equivalent of $20 Million USD. Robin8 helps brands find the best people for their campaigns using big data and AI. The company’s proprietary technology focuses on profiling, ranking and matching people to great content that is personalized to each person’s interest.

With the global app, advertisers and brands including traditional advertisers can sign up on the Robin8 website and connect to millions of targeted micro-influencers for content amplification. The do-it-yourself platform is automated and provides end-to-end performance attribution.
Currently, the social media giants leave users out of the loop. With the arrival of the blockchain, Robin8 gives control of the profile data back to the owner and empowers everyone with their data.
Micro:influencer — A Natural Way to Share Content for Better Revenues
While many people that actively post on social media can make a living out of becoming dedicated ‘influencers,’ the bar is set high. To make a living as a Youtube vlogger requires a lot of time and effort. Robin8 introduces the ‘Micro-influencer:’ a casual yet engaged user who is rewarded financially for what they do naturally day-by-day, share content they are interested in and passionate about.
Robin8 Co-founder Hassan Miah, said, “The Global App is the first step in giving users everywhere the power of personal data analysis and control in the palm of their hand. We are also currently working on adding Blockchain which gives users the power to claim ownership of their data and better tracking if used by others. These tools will make it easier to share great content and amplify value both for the sharer and advertiser.”
Hassan added, “Besides helping everyone monetize their influence through content sharing, Blockchain technology add powerful benefits to people everywhere.”
With social media, every person is a media, a brand, and a micro-influencer. Anyone can share and create content and get rewarded.
In the coming months, users of the global app will be able to apply Robin8’s metrics to their online social data. Additionally, users can get credit in the form of Profile Utility Tokens (PUT), the cryptocurrency used by the platform as a form of payment.
