China’s Online Population Explosion

27 07 2007

URL: Readers may be aware that China’s population continues to grow, but what they may be less aware of is that many millions more Chinese continue to gravitate towards various online activities. This report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project provides some insights into this trend. Authored by Deborah Fallows, this July 2007 report looks at the potential ramifications of this increasingly web-savvy populace. The report also suggests, “An expanding Internet population might also increase domestic tensions that could spill over into China’s relations with the U.S. and other countries.” The rest of the report covers who exactly is using the internet in China, and also offers some analysis of how China’s internet population will grow in the coming years.
