The biggest Chinese SNS "Renren" have 280 million registered users. And they started to provide own chat tool "Tongxueshuo".

Renren is the one of biggest SNS provider in China, and they got the high popularity in the recent research as I introduced before. And according to a report, Renren have 280 million registered users as of the end of March.

East China : 31%
(Shanghai, Jiangsi, Zhejiang...)

South China : 17%
(Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi...)

(Beijing, Hebei, Tianjin...)

Middle China : 12%

And they have 110 million PC active users and 26 million mobile active users.








The ratio of male to female - 56% : 44%





User distribution by age:

90's or later     45%
80's                    35%
70's or earlier  20%







Next is the utilization rate by each mobile devices.















Android have 55.6% share, and they won the first place. But it seems that this share does not include access by feature phone, and it's not counted access to WAP page.

According to this report, there are 1.7 million posts that include the location information daily in Renren, and its cumulative number is over 700 million posts.


Well, they recently started to provide the their own chat tools "Tongxueshuo".
 

It seems that this chat tool focuses to have the communication in the same university, and this user has to register their college before they start to use this.
* And they didn't support that users register the foreign college yet.


I would like to keep the attentions about the trend of Chinese SNS as same as WeChat or Weibo as ever.
