As internet becomes easy accessible, people can get almost every kind of information using it. According to a Chinese government study, 802 million people in China are now active internet users. This amounts to 57.7% of the country’s population. Compare the US’s estimated 300 million internet users, or 78.2% of its population. While China might not yet have the same market penetration, it has a greater potential for growth. Even more interesting is the incredible level of mobile uptake in China: 98% of Chinese people using the internet do so via mobile devices. Compare that with just 73% in the US. This makes Chinese social media more immediate and dynamic, with mobile users looking to platforms like WeChat and Weibo for the latest recommendations, testimonials, and tips. The peoples in all over China are using those above social media. The peoples share their thoughts, activities and acquire knowledge from it.
