Author's TalkOutput Netease Science and Technology "State Celsius" Column Group434 million dollars! After the failure of the sprint listing, the news of this round of financing made the technology circle boil. However, the most surprising thing is that this round of financing is led by fast-hand investment, Baidu, Tencent, today's capital and investment. Some people in the circle of friends sigh: today's headline enemies, gathered!
Is the logic of investment strange?
Quick-hand investment leads to some surprises for many people: there is a big difference between the two groups of users, although the knowledgeable group of users has declined slightly, but for fast-hand content ridicule is still common.
And the relationship between Baidu and Baidu is not so good: Wei Zexi recorded his own experience of seeing a doctor on the basis of knowledge, and then was fermented by the media. After that, Baidu became the hardest hit area.
Therefore, after the news of quick-hand lead, Baidu and Baidu follow the news, many netizens'response is: fast-hand and Baidu is to seal up the mouth of knowledgeable netizens?
For investment know-how, Baidu's statement is that strategic cooperation with know-how is based on a high degree of synergy between super entrance and professional knowledge question-and-answer.
Baidu said,Knowing that hundreds of millions of high-quality questions and answers will be accessed to Baidu App in the form of smart applets, and distributed individually to users with different interests through AI technology in Baidu search, information flow and other product matrices, the cooperation between the two sides will bring new knowledge content consumption experience to millions of users.
Zhihu Zhou Yuan said in the open letter that the competition of the content track is becoming more and more fierce, the technical iteration, the media upgrade, the user out of the circle, and the creative ecology.
Zhou Yuan stressed that the new strategic shareholders highly agree with the value and vision they know, and will also give strong support in terms of flow scale and content ecology. Fast hand has not yet responded.
However, after sending out the open letter, Zhou Yuan answered in Zhihu.Last year, I attended a meeting with Suhua.During the dinner, I found that Suhua was brushing Zhihu with a trumpet, and I was brushing fast hands with a trumpet, and the frequency was not low.
Zhouyuan said that although the product form and user scenarios of Zhihuihe Fast Hand and Baidu are very different, users also have similarities in a large area. The problem of information island and the increasing cost for users to obtain high-quality content are the same; through the same way as Fast Hand and Baidu. Capital cooperation helps to connect valuable information to more people efficiently.
This answer below, many net users proposed whether to baidu and quick hand. See many friends worried about the follow-up administrators in the face of unfair content processing scale, how possible?None of our investors in so many rounds (including those who know themselves) has prevented us from discussing /(o)/~. Before giving advice or suggestions, no matter how heated the words are, they are still there, let alone the investors. The deletion of irregularities and the deletion of non-irregularities will be the same in the past and in the future. Community management norms are the bottom line and cannot be changed. Are you satisfied with these two answers?
Is it to resist byte beating?
After the news came out, many media began to speculate: fast hand Baidu Tencent, is it in order to resist the bytecode beat and cast Zhihu?
After all, the byte beating that recruited people to search publicly some time ago is prying Baidu's basic disk, and the competition between its trembler and fast hand is in full swing. There is a full range of competition between Tencent and byte beating.
Early this morning, the first Financial Daily reported that Zhihu launched the current round of financing after the failure of the sprint listing at the end of 2018, with competitors including bytecode beat, Baidu, Tencent, and Kuaishou. In the end, Baidu Kuaishou won the lead investment because Zhang Yiming was unwilling to further raise the code.
First Financial Daily reported that Zhang Yiming actually began contacting Zhihu and Zhou Yuan in late last year. This further satisfies media speculation: in the hearts of Tencent and Baidu, the byte beating around is already a serious problem, and there is an urgent need to limit its expansion, even if it is a joint venture. But can Tencent and Baidu reach their goals with their money?
