Here’s a useful infographic showing where the Chinese web is at in mid-2012, with all the updated stats for how many folks are online, and new social media user figures for a dozen of the nation’s most popular services.
Made for us by the folks over at BestFreeOnline, it highlights how Chinese net users are some of the world’s most social, with 91 percent of them in a sample survey saying that they’d visited a social media site in the past six months. By comparison, only 87 percent of Americans have done the same.

Sina’s (NASDAQ:SINA) Weibo, as China’s hottest Twitter-like site, is growing at an amazing pace, recently surpassing 300 million registered users and now standing at 324 million.
