China is already the clear leader in the number of social network users and will outdistance the U.S. by more than 2-to-1 in 2014. There were an estimated 256 million social network users in China last year, compared with 147 million in the U.S.; by 2014 that gap will have widened to 414 million Chinese social networkers versus 170 million in the U.S.
This infographic, created by G+, takes a look at China’s answer to social networking. Of the country’s half billion Internet users, half of them are on multiple social networks and 30% log into at least one network each day. Chinese citizens spend an average of 2.7 hours online per day — second to only the Japanese.
