Updated for December 2016. Here is a comprehensive list of all of the QQ statistics and facts that you need to know.
Updated for January 2016. Here are some of the most interesting China social media statistics I have been able to dig up.
With all the commotion surrounding messaging apps in the United States, we sometime over look the fact that some of the biggest messaging apps in the world are not only based in other countries, but some have hundreds of millions of users and don’t focus on the U.S. at all. This is the case of Momo, a gigantic Chinese messaging app with a twist. Momo uses the location of the user to help find other users to chat with. The thought is that it connects users with similar interests who are close-by and would normally never meet.
Momo has been popping up quite a bit in my feeds lately, so I decided to take a look at just how poplar their service is.
With all the press ecommerce heavyweights Amazon and Alibaba get these days it is understandable if you aren’t overly familiar with China’s second-largest ecommerce site/platform, Jingdong (known outside of China as JD.com). Like Alibaba, JD.com went public last year, listing on the NASDAQ in the U.S. and has continue to grow pretty steadily since. JD.com is not on the same level as Amazon and Alibaba just yet, but they are quickly entering the conversation.
I spent a little quality time with a couple of my more popular Chinese stat posts. Chinese super-networks Weibo and Wechat recently filed their quarterly financial reports and offered up a few interesting tidbits. The stats don’t flow out of some of our Asian friends as freely as most of the Western digital companies, so I pounce on them when available and update my posts quickly.
Below are a few of the more interesting WeChat and Weibo stats from this round of updates. Keep in mind that there are now dozens of stats listed in my Weibo and WeChat posts, so use the links below to check out each of the posts if you are looking for more.
The “World Map of Social Networks” is a great visual that Italian social media strategist Vincenzo Cosenza created a few years ago to show what social network dominates where in the world..
The social media world map was created by Italian social media pro and author Vincenzo Cosenza and shows us that, despite 1 billion users, Facebook still has quite a bit of room to grow in Asia.
