Read about it here How China is changing your internet
In August 2016, the New York Times published this incredible video about the internet in China.
For many this may be a very impressive realisation. And it is.
To us in China, WeChat is the 'one and only' connection to the outside world and to all the services available. From ordering food and groceries, ordering a cab or paying your utilities bills and buying your cinema tickets. Just to name a few.
Besides chatting with your friends and colleagues it is the main platform used in China to update your social whereabouts and post status updates and pictures.
WeChat started of as a little App called WeiXin as we remember it in the early days. It was -at that time- fun to try a new App and we compared it with WhatsApp saying : "This is the Chinese WhatsApp."
In a matter of a few years the messaging Apps cannot be compared anymore. Or should not be compared anymore.
WeChat is it all! And WhatsApp?... Well, nobody here uses that.
Your On-the-Ground People in China.
