WeChat Moments is a feature in WeChat to upload your posts; it’s called in Chinese 朋友圈 which means circle of friends. This feature’s greatest advantage compared to other social media platforms is the high level of privacy.

Those posts you upload to WeChat and share only with your WeChat contacts, aka your circle of friends, will be seen in their timeline. menining your Friends yes!, other people no.
You can also check out your friend’s new moments posts in your Moments timeline.

The posts can be made of up to 9 photos, videos up to 15 seconds, articles, text in the caption, and include links and websites.
