The folks over at Statista have collected some informative figures about how the internet is growing in China . For regular readers of this blog, many of the stats are not new, but I think they did a great job of putting everything together into a comprehensive infographic .
As we’ve mentioned here before, China’s internet user total passed 513 million in 2011 according to CNNIC, which accounts for 38.3 percent of the total population. That means there’s still much room to grow, in comparision with penetration rates in the US and Europe, for example.
The graphic, which you can check out in full below, also touches on China’s affinity for instant messaging as well as its growing ecommerce market.
