Chinese internet users can’t all be lumped together; their culture is diverse in history, location and language. Aside from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, there are large Chinese speaking populations around the world. There’s tons of social networks for Chinese speakers, but we’re focusing on the largest and most popular.
Many people in the West know that China filters the internet. As such, social media sites we use heavily like Facebook, Twitter and even YouTube, are blocked. What’s surprising though is the usage of social media among Chinese internet users.
There are 514 million internet users in China and an estimated 54% use social media. This means that China leads the world in total amount of social media users – these users are spending their time on a few massive sites.
