Abstract
Emerging media, as a new and highly operational vehicle of information dissemination, has sprouted around the world in recent years, greatly undermining the power of traditional media. WeChat, as an emerging social platform, dominates Chinese new media market. In Chinese colleges and universities, WeChat is a highly popular social app. Many college students do their own media via Official WeChat Account (subscription). Despite of the new forms that have brought numerous benefits, challenges such as attracting fans, content quality and creativity still exist given the limitations of We Media or “self media” and the immaturity of student-run media. To overcome these challenges, strategies should be adopted to deal with each challenge, which will be the major discussion of the essay.
