Over the last few years, China has seen an explosion in the number of internet and mobile users.

Advances in technology have enabled local hardware manufacturers to produce sub-$150 smartphones which have become popular across China and are used by consumers for socializing, entertainment, information search and shopping. This has given birth to a plethora of mobile internet services in the country.
