The name “EyeShenzhen” implies that people through the website will be able to see what Shenzhen is like as a city, whereas “EYE” is an acronym for equality, youth and excellence - qualities innate to Shenzhen. The pronunciation resembles “爱深圳” in Chinese, which means “loving Shenzhen.”
Along with the website, an English-language WeChat service account by the same name is in operation. Users can share “EyeShenzhen” articles via Weibo and WeChat with just one click.
