  34. 34. Digital China’s Top 15Social Sites
  35. 35. Top 15 Social Platforms1. Qzone - China’s largest social network is back of the 637 million active accounts for Tencent’s QQ Messenger. The question for Qzone is not quantity, but rather the quality of its nickname-based social graph. 190M
  36. 36. Top 15 Social Platforms2. Renren – China’s leading real-name social network that intends to IPO soon. It is setting the standard for SNS in China but still faces challenges from other social networks, notably Tencent’s Pengyou and Kaixin001. 95M
  37. 37. Top 15 Social Platforms3. Pengyou – Tencent’s latest entry into the real-name social networking space has many users. But even more so than with Qzone, the real question is, how strong is the social graph? 80M
  38. 38. Top 15 Social Platforms4. Sina Weibo – The red-hot microblogging service that threatens China’s social networks with a new model. Can microblogging surpass social networking in terms of popularity in China? Its features now far surpass those of Twitter, including threaded comments, pictures, videos, IM, and LBS. 70M
  39. 39. Top 15 Social Platforms5. Kaixin001 – Popular amongst white-collar workers via its social games and post-forwarding features. But as the social games mania has died down and the appeal of its post-forwarding has been usurped by Sina Weibo, Kaixin001 is now struggling. 40M
  40. 40. Top 15 Social Platforms6. 51.Com – Enjoyed early popularity among comparatively rural users, but now appears to be in a downward spiral. One recent report says peak simultaneous users are down to 700,000. 51.com’s claim of 178 million “registered users” is either irrelevant or fake, a case that requires skepticism by the tonne. 40M
  41. 41. Top 15 Social Platforms7. Douban – The strongest community of any social network in China. It’s never had explosive growth or a massive user base (in China terms), but it attracts young urban Chinese who together over movies, books, music, and events. A good network for hipsters and creatives. 20M
  42. 42. Top 15 Social Platforms8. Taomee – A social network and gaming site (similar to the Disney-owned Club Penguin) that’s massively popular with Chinese children (and their mothers). Taomee is in fact the parent company that runs a number of different children’s sites, including: Moer (mole-themed), Saier (sci-fi themed), and XiaoHua (princess-themed). 20M
  43. 43. Top 15 Social Platforms9. Tencent Weibo – Pushing its microblog service in order to compete with Sina. It claims over 100 million registered users, but again with Tencent there’s the concern of quality over quantity - Sina Weibo controls 87% of time spent by Chinese users on microblogs, while Tencent holds only 9%. 20M
  44. 44. Top 15 Social Platforms10. Jiayuan – China’s most popular online dating site, which is rumored to have plans for an IPO. 11M
  45. 45. Top 15 Social Platforms11. Tao Jianghu – SNS of popular e-commerce site, Taobao. Profiles are automatically created for Taobao users. Adding a social layer is one of Taobao’s key objectives for 2011. 10M
  46. 46. Top 15 Social Platforms12. Bai Shehui – The “white-collar society” network by Sohu, one of China’s largest internet portals. Sohu also develops its own social games for this platform. 10M
  47. 47. Top 15 Social Platforms13. Zhenai - A leading China dating site, rumored to be preparing for an IPO. 5M
  48. 48. Top 15 Social Platforms14. Baihe – Yet another of China’s leading dating sites! 2M
  49. 49. Top 15 Social Platforms15. iPartment – An avatar-based dating site from Taiwan where teens and young adults move into a virtual apartment together. Revenues come from advertising, virtual goods, and e-commerce. 1M
