In early August 1995, Tsinghua Student ace set up BBS on a 386/Linux in the laboratory with the system of Coconut Forest Style Station of Taiwan University.

August 8, China Education Network, the first BBS

Here, a small programmer in Beijing, through the IP field, found the same secret lover working in the right direction; shy in life, he is like a fish in the water in the network, chatting with the goddess Tian Nan Haibei unusually, and finally holding the beauty home.

This is the story of Zhou Hongyi and his lover Hu Huan on BBS. This twenty years of social networking in China intend to start from here:

BBS

The age of social media barbarism

1994, the first Internet BBS in mainland China

In 1995, Ma Huateng set up his website in Shenzhen, named Pony-soft.

In 1996, Qiu Bojun set up a building in Zhuhai

At that time, BBS had not been popularized, the interface under Telnet protocol was simple and complicated, but the keen sense of smell and the desire for the network made the big men who later became famous in the Internet era gather here, and opened up the barren era of Chinese network social interaction.

In 1997, the sixth FIFA World Cup defeat, the most promising national team in the road to France, countless fans ended in disappointment.

A few days later, the football-obsessed Fuzhou man Lao Rong wrote the article "Dalian Jinzhou Doesn't Believe Tears" indignantly on the Sports Salon of Sitonglifang.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518597-1793499863.jpg

This post was then spread all over the web, arousing extensive attention from football and media circles, and was reprinted in the full page of Southern weekend on November 14, 1997, with the name of Sitong Li Fang and the forum moderator.

This article makes people feel the unprecedented dissemination effect of the Internet for the first time. These unrelated words, Top Ten Competition, Lao Rong, Four Tong Li Fang, became the symbol of the rise of China's Internet Forum in 1997.

This year, Ding Lei founded the NetEase.

On October 26, the same year, a young man in Changsha, who had just celebrated his birthday, hung up a forum on the Internet. Its function was simple: an information base of TV Game materials and a chat room where TV Game like to pour water and scatter wilderness.

The Changsha youth, whose real name is Tian Zhe, is taciturn and uncommunicative. He has no hobbies other than surfing the Internet and playing video games.

He gave himself a Mop,.

This online name gave birth to it.

In the spring of 1998, Liu Hu, a homeboy graduated from the Computer Department of Nanjing Power Traffic School, built a prototype of Xici Hutong at home in his spare time. It was officially released on April 14. The first large-scale integrated community in the Chinese-speaking area was launched.

Liu Hu selection

He would never have imagined that the future ancestral temple would cross the region and become a banner of the Chinese network.

In December 1st of that year, the four parties merged with the United States Huayuan, named Sina.

In Haikou, Xing Ming, who graduated from the Chinese Department of Sun Yat-sen University, is already a God-level figure. He has a very special online name.

This year, 968 decided to invest the money it earned in the stock market in the unknown industry of online forums.

In March 1, 1999, Tianya went on line.

Perhaps it's the literati atmosphere in the founder's bones. Tianya attracts a large number of network writers and spreads the best-selling works such as The Biography of Wulin and Those Things in Ming Dynasty.

At that time, Tianya culture was almost the same as the network culture, and Tianya quickly stood on the top of the scorn chain of the network community.

Since then,

Today's well-known irrigation, diving, next door, rookies, GG, PLMM, dinosaurs swept into the pile of old paper are all products of that era.

At that time, we all focused on the dazzling content of the forum and online love. 968 there is a famous saying: people who have never been in love with Internet have no sense of net.

IM

Tencent QQ's way of sealing the gods

There are two flowers, each with one watch.

With the rise of the Internet, BBS represented by Maupu and Tianya gradually blossomed and fruited, and then developed three portal websites: Sina, Sohu and Netease.

On the other hand, the station master of Penny, who is far away from Shenzhen, will take his newborn QQ and embark on the road of social feudalism in China.

I do not know how many people still remember the original name of QQ: OICQ, that is, Open ICQ.

In 1996, three young Israelis who had just completed their military service released a software to support online chat, called ICQ

In less than a year, ICQ became the world's largest instant messaging software and was acquired by AOL for $407 million at the end of 1998.

At this point, the number of users of ICQ has exceeded 10 million.

Looking back to China, one of Run Xun's employees noticed ICQ software very early. He is the master of Huiduo Shenzhen Station.

At that time, Ma Huateng had germinated the idea of entrepreneurship. Ding Lei, a former netizen of Huiduo and founder of Netease today, became a well-known millionaire by developing an email system, which gave him the most direct stimulation.

But he didn't want to do software like ICQ.

The impulse to start a business constantly urged the young Pony Ma, finally, he could not restrain to find an old classmate Zhang Zhidong, said he wanted to do a

Although from now on, it is definitely a bad product, but for this idea, Ma Huateng and Zhang Zhidong have found Xu Chenye, Chen Yidan and Zeng Li Qing successively.

Since then, the five tigers of Tencent have been completed.

Now, the birth of myth is only one opportunity.

Soon, a chance came. Guangzhou Telecom openly invites tenders for Chinese instant messaging tools similar to ICQ to the whole society. Five of Ma Huateng decided to give it a try.

Due to time constraints, only a technical solution is available. It is OICQ.

Unfortunately, the winning bidder has already set the PCICQ of Fei Hua company.

Despite this, the persistent Ma Huateng decided to do the OICQ

November 11, 1998, Tencent incorporated, Ma Huateng

In February 10, 1999, OICQ was officially released, version No. 99beta build 0210.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518587-2016702534.jpg

Funny to say, Tencent's goal was to develop 1,000 users in the first year, 3,000 to 4,000 in the second year and 10,000 in the third year.

However, after nearly 9 months, the registered users of OICQ exceeded 1 million.

Unfortunately, reality is cruel: Tencent can't afford it at all

This leads to another tense story about the team taking money to subsidize households, halving the wages of all employees, selling Tencent for 3 million yuan and getting IDG investment on the life and death line, which is not detailed here.

In 2000, while OICQ swept across China, a complaint was sent to Tencent, the parent company of ICQ, which had just been established for three years, to sue Tencent online for infringement of rights, and to request the recovery of two domains, OICQ.com and OICQ.net.

The historic turning point has come. OICQ must rename.

But what's the name?

This once caused the Tencent to be distressed.

At the time, because ICQ and OICQ were best known as web chat software, they were affectionately called in the industry

Ma Huateng was quick in intelligence and decided to take the word as his own.

In November 2000, the classic QQ2000 version of QQ iteration was formally launched.

Later, as you all know, QQ users quickly exceeded 100 million, in the field of instant messaging, a ride in the dust, and then Microsoft MSN made a big offense, but also failed to prevent the appearance of harmless Penguin onto the social altar.

So far, Tencent has laid the foundation for the rule of the social empire, and in the days to come, it can be said that the gods block the gods and kill the gods.

Blog

Dawn of the media

With the advent of the new century, the Internet bubble and capital winter sweeping the globe have left many well-known Internet companies on the line.

But, as Nietzsche said:

Fortunately, Tencent got the investment and renamed and reborn. Then, the Internet in China entered the season of endless wildfires and spring breeze.

On the one hand, Dai Zhikang and his Discuz have brought a revolutionary turning point to the development of the forum. Various local forums, software forums and novel forums have sprung up.

On the other hand, Blog has come to China from the sea, and the embryonic form of the media is coming into being.

On July 6, 2002, Fang Xingdong, a well-known columnist, published two articles: "Surrender to Microsoft" and "Why Microsoft".

As usual, these two articles were published in the recommendation columns of major websites, but to his surprise, in just two hours, all articles were strongly blocked by Microsoft.

Fang Xingdong lost his voice on the Internet for the first time since he entered the IT industry, which made him feel ridiculous and sad.

That year, the Internet began to pick up, Sohu announced the first to make profits.

It was also in that year that Fang Xingdong knew about Blog and the opportunity knocked on the door of the blog godfather; he realized that blog would be a huge change for China's Internet.

So Fang Xingdong and Wang Junxiu published the Declaration of Chinese Blog, which translated blog into blog for the first time and called it Magellan in the information age. At the end of the declaration, Fang Xingdong wrote:

Blog culture can lead China to transform into a knowledge-based society. Blog care can open a responsible era.

In August 2002, blog China was founded.

In the same year, Guo Xiaolai, a sophomore at the Chinese University of Science and Technology, set up Blogbus; to develop Blogcn, with a single-handedness of more than 200 yuan in his junior year in Hangzhou, and then Hu Zhiguang joined.

Unfortunately, the new era predicted by the Godfather of the blog has not arrived and the openness is poor, which makes the blog never enter the public's vision.

And then there's a dramatic person on the stage.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518629-1317443829.jpg

On June 19, 2003, an online writer named Mu Zimei created a home page in China for her blog, and one day in August, she described her real name in the famous letter of Love with the famous rock musician in Guangzhou.

The article was reprinted by netizens to the West Temple alley, causing a great stir.

On November 11, three portal websites recommended Muzimei's articles on the front page respectively, and the number of Chinese visitors to the blog instantly exceeded 100,000.

Fang Xingdong self mockery said:

The elite know that the blog is because of me, and the masses know that the blog is because of Mu Zimei.

At the end of 2003, the trial version of Tianya Blog was launched and became the first website in China to combine public community with personal blog.

Then there appeared bamboo shadow, green pupil, hooliganism, etc.

Two years later, Sina made a high-profile move to launch the Blog 2.0 public beta on September 8, 2005, with the help of celebrity effects in the blogosphere.

Then, Tencent, Sohu, NetEase and other portals opened fire, and portal blogs broke out.

With the entry of blog as a new force, forums, communities and various portals have further developed, more and more new writers have emerged, Muzimei has been gradually forgotten, replaced by network literature, news commentary and knowledge sharing, which is closer to Fang Xingdong's ideal.

The seeds of the media also took root during this period.

With broadband access, the Internet has gradually entered the lives of ordinary people.

In December 3, 2003, the post bar was formally launched and became the fist product of Baidu in the social field.

In March 6, 2005, albei created the bean paste, and the whole network Wen Qing found their spiritual corner.

China's Internet has entered the Web2.0 era.

SNS

Acquaintances are in full swing.

Since the Web2.0 era, people have encountered an embarrassing situation very quickly.

On the one hand, the content production of the Internet has almost no threshold, but lack of content sorting and dissemination mechanism, a large number of information is submerged;

On the other hand, more and more people are connected to the Internet, but the mainstream websites are content-centric, and the penetration of acquaintances in the network encounters obstacles.

On the other side of the ocean, SNS, a social network based on the theory of six-dimensional space, is developing rapidly under the leadership of Friendster and Myspace. Harvard campus is also about to usher in the birth of Facebook.

In this context, another big boy with strong curiosity about entrepreneurship came on the stage, he is Wang Xing.

In the winter of 2003, Wang Xing, who was studying in the United States, decided to go back to China to start his own business.

He found two people: Wang Huiwen, an undergraduate roommate of Tsinghua Academy of Sciences, and Lai Binqiang, a middle school student with a computer background. They all had vague business ideas, and Wang Xing's return to China became an opportunity.

The three rented a house in Haifeng Garden, near Tsinghua, and began their first product.

Perhaps it was in response to that remark:

The sky will be great for the people.

Duo Duoyou didn't get a good response when they went online. In the following year, they tried several products one after another, all of which ended in failure.

Fortunately, the development of SNS started in China in 2004 is not ideal, which means that Wang Xing still has a chance.

In 2005, a trend of reflection on SNS spread over the Internet: Chinese people are conservative and unwilling to publish information such as photos and real names on the Internet. SNS may not be suitable for China.

But Wang Xing, they don't doubt

Later, when looking at the data of many friends, Wang Xing found that many people would log in once a week and leave messages and personal letters with their friends.

They feel vaguely: the question is not whether users are willing to leave their real names, but whether there is anything on the site that makes them feel that it is valuable to leave their real names.

In December 8, 2005, the Facebook campus network was formally launched.

The intranet is not so lucky as QQ. Early users were drawn by teams in various ways, such as ticket lottery, bus transfer to railway station, and sponsoring students to shoot DV.

But like QQ, the product is right.

The users of the campus network slowly reached 1 thousand and 10 thousand, and competitors also came.

The film network of Peking University, Fudan Saturn, eDorm of the National People's Congress, looface of Beihang, a hundred million friends of Sun Yat-sen University, Harvard, Li Zhaoxing's son, returned to dorm 99, Zhang Fan and his wife of Yale MBA made seating nets, and Chen Yizhou made 5Q nets.

As soon as SNS enters the campus, it is like the splash of water splashing and the vitality of BBS.

Compared with competitors, the biggest feature of the campus network is the use of Facebook mature UI and interaction.

Although it once carried the name of plagiarism, it saved time and effort, and was more user-friendly than the blind innovation of other websites.

Interestingly, it is precisely because of plagiarism Facebook, the campus network has entered the sight of Sequoia Capital.

Unfortunately, Wang Xing was still a young big boy at that time. The lack of business model and the temporary arrogance made the intranet lose its hand in the red shirt.

Finally, the school's net bombs run out of grain, in the face of fierce market competition, had to sell to Chen Yizhou's Thousand Oaks Group.

In 2006, the combination of Intranet and 5Q network successfully occupied the campus market; through the breakthrough of acquaintance relationship, SNS eventually found a way out in China.

But as the saying goes, all roads lead to Rome; on the other hand, Kaixin has emerged as a new force, and through the white-collar circle, it has come out of a different road.

In March 2008, Kaixin, which is located in the white-collar circle, was set up. In the following two months, it launched friends'trading and parking applications. The social fission model similar to friends' circle games first appeared on the SNS website.

In just one year, the number of registered users of the Kaixin network has exceeded 15 million.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518612-899765237.jpg

With Kaixin rising flat, SNS began to walk out of the campus, Sina friends, Sohu Bai society, Taobao Taojiang Lake, Ali people, all resources rushed to enter the track one after another.

On August 4, 2009, nearly 70 million registered users of the intranet officially renamed Renren, marking the peak of China's SNS network.

With the relationship chain as the filtering mechanism and the feed stream as the content distribution mechanism, people's online experience has finally reached a new level since the blog era.

With third-party applications such as API-enabled social games, Facebook's victory seems imminent.

However, Renren wants to be the Facebook, and has its last fight to play

As early as April 2005, Tencent launched another social product

At that time, QQ space was still a blog-flavored QQ accessory, but strictly speaking, the new members of the penguin family already carried an unprecedented SNS gene.

It waits silently and waits for a spectacular appearance.

In January 2009, QQ alumni went online, and Tencent took a tentative step towards SNS as a defense against Renren. In November of the same year, Tencent bought the qzone.com domain name, and QQ space officially opened the transition from personal home page to SNS network.

It was only a campaign that was supposed to be thrilling, but no suspense.

In just a few months, QQ farms and other space applications quickly killed Kaixin. QQ alumni also suppressed Renren. The battle of SNS ended at a staggering speed.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, QQ space users exceeded 480 million; at the end of 2013, QQ space was ranked as the third largest social website in the world and the first in China.

Why can't China get out of Facebook?

Because of QQ, this has almost become the consensus of Internet users later.

The SNS war looks like a hasty ending, which has enabled Tencent to consolidate its dominance of the social Empire again.

However, the war is far from over. Tencent's unshakable empire will continue to meet the challenge. This time, the victory belongs to others.

micro-blog

The socialization age of Internet communication

Let's turn back to the spring of 2007. In the 20 years of this social interaction, the big boy named Wang Xing made his second appearance.

After the school intranet joined Qianxiang Group, Wang Xing and others were not so satisfied. Wang Huiwen, Lai Binqiang and others left in succession. Wang Xing also left Qianxiang after the lock-in period.

This time, Wang Xing came to Mu Rongjun, a disciple who works in Baidu, and said that he planned to do something again, not to sell it one day.

Wang Xing and Mu Rongjun began their second phase of entrepreneurship, and they turned their sights on Twitter.

Twitter, which has been on line for more than half a year, is a micro-blog. Users can send messages within 140 characters on it through computers and mobile phones.

In march 2007, Twitter hosted the

In Wang Xing's eyes, Twitter, a lightweight model, may redefine the way the Internet disseminates information.

In May 2007, rice online.

After years of entrepreneurship, Wang Xing has had a certain influence in the industry, but also made many friends, these people have become the first users of meals.

At the same time, in the spirit of freedom and openness, Fanfei has also won the favor of some bloggers and deep users of the Internet.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518598-1633513937.jpg

However, in the early days, we did not know what to write 140 words well. Although SNS has been on the right track, users'sharing habits have not been fully developed.

In terms of the Internet environment and the functionality of mobile phones, 2007 was a relatively advanced year in China, so Wang Xing turned to a white-collar SNS site.

Of course, for various reasons, the intranet did not enter the first echelon of SNS as Kaixin did, but in the busy year of the intranet, whether food grew quietly or not.

In 2008, the upsurge of Twitter spread to China. This form of micro-blog meets the needs of users to record and share information anytime and anywhere. It also has more direct news acquisition and dissemination capabilities than traditional portals.

Whether meal inherited the simple interaction of simplicity and authenticity, in the next year, it burst out with vigorous vitality.

In 2009, the number of fanfanfangwei users exceeded 1 million. More and more news spread from fangwei, such as Deng Yujiao incident in Badong, Hubei, Shishou incident, etc. Fanfangwei began to have the rudiment of social public opinion platform.

Does this put a lot of pressure on the food?

It is regrettable that Wang Xing, who does not know politics, still underestimated the power of public opinion.

In the second half of this year, the Urumqi incident broke out, or the rice meal closed for 505 days.

Wang Xing's performance in the social field has come to an end. Next, the journey of American League Network is another magnificent chapter.

Fortunately, in more than a year of stagnation, only two employees left the team, one of whom was Zhang Yiming, and today's headlines, which are regarded as thorns in the eyes by Sina Weibo in the future, are also later words.

Although the meal has been harmonious, the short and smooth mode of Weibo has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. In September 2009, Sina Weibo went online quietly, became the first portal website to open Weibo services, and once again copied the celebrity strategy of the blog era, which attracted the attention of the whole network at a surprising speed.

Subsequently, various portals such as micro-blog, e-commerce micro-blog and SNS micro-blog have been established. Even TV stations and telecom operators have begun to participate in micro-blog business, and China has really entered the era of micro-blog.

Meanwhile, Jobs in Silicon Valley launched two products, the iPad and the iPhone, within a year. Just 10 years after the 21st century, the mobile Internet suddenly arrived.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518600-154642129.jpg

With the popularity of smartphones, microblogs with natural mobile attributes have entered an unprecedented period of prosperity, in which Sina Weibo took the lead, and quickly became a phenomenal product of national character after experiencing great waves.

Li Kaifu published a book entitled "Weibo, Change Everything" based on his experience in opening a blog.

Because of micro-blog, the age of socialization of Internet communication has arrived.

Unfortunately, Tencent seems to have slowed down this time.

Tencent micro-blog went online in May 2010, 8 months later than Sina micro-blog.

Social networking is inherently winner-take-all. Eight months is enough for Cao Guowei and Chen Tong to establish the dominance of Sina Weibo.

The next year may be Ma Huateng's most painful year.

Tencent's micro-blog is chasing Sina with great anxiety. Unexpectedly, Tencent's "Dog Day Tencent" plunges Tencent into internal and external troubles and suffers from enemies on both sides. The famous 3Q war begins here.

At the end of 2010, when the battle with 360 came to a head, Sina Weibo announced that it had 100 million users and launched Sina Weibo with dual functions of communication and media dissemination, which directly challenged QQ group.

Just like defeating QQ, it will never be another QQ; if you beat micro-blog, it will never be another micro-blog.

Almost everyone realizes that Tencent's victory rate for sina is slim.

The future of the social Empire looks bleak for the time being.

Nevertheless, nobody would have thought that the 3Q war was the bloody sound of the PC era. In the vast Internet world, a new era is coming, and the failure of the microblog battlefield has not affected Tencent's Nirvana again.

WeChat

The arrival of mobile Internet

In October 2010, a

The advent of this communication tool is like the ICQ of the year.

In this area, the fastest response is from the past.

After the baptism of Jinshan, Lei Jun has become one of the legends of the Chinese Internet community.

He believes that what is in sight is likely to be an excellent entry point in the mobile internet field.

Just 37 days later, Xiaomi released the first Chinese product to mimic kik

If Tencent intervenes in this field, the likelihood of success of Michao will be greatly reduced. According to internal information, Tencent has given us three months.

In a dinner after Mickey chat, Lei Jun said.

At that time Tencent was mired in the quagmire of the 3Q war.

The emergence of MI chat is probably the latest death from Tencent.

Now, it's the turn of the man called God.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518601-272050866.jpg

In 1996, Netease developed WebMail, which made Ding Lei the first entrepreneur to earn real gold and silver in the Internet industry, and directly stimulated Ma Huateng's entrepreneurial dream.

At almost the same time, a graduate student who graduated less than two years independently wrote Foxmail, a well-known mail client, is Xiaolong Zhang.

At that time, China's Internet connection was slow, but the client was relatively fast. One year after Foxmail came online, the number of users of Chinese version exceeded 4 million, and the number of users of English version spread over more than 20 countries. Zhang Xiaolong became a legend in South China and was regarded as the representative of the second generation of software engineers after Qiu Bojun.

At that time, Ma Huateng was still running the Shenzhen website. He wrote an email to Zhang Xiaolong, pointing out a design error of Foxmail, which was the first communication between pony stationmaster and the father of Weixin.

But unlike Ding Lei and Ma Huateng, he is introverted and does not have a cold for business, so he has never set up his own company.

In 1998, Foxmail made 12 million of its selling price, and Zhang Xiaolong turned it into an enterprise mail server.

In 2005, Foxmail was acquired by Tencent in the campaign of QQ defense against MSN, and Zhang Xiaolong entered the QQ mailbox. However, because of the ambiguity of the profit model of the mailbox, his career is still tepid.

In November 2010, Zhang Xiaolong, a solitary resident in Guangzhou, noticed Kik and sent an e-mail to Ma Huateng late at night, suggesting that his team make a similar product.

For him and Tencent, there is no doubt that it is fortunate.

So, on November 20, 2010, on the day of the 3Q War, which was officially mediated by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology,

From a time perspective, the Tencent only left Lei Jun for 40 days.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518604-366649038.jpg

Next is the life and death rate of MI chat and WeChat.

In the beginning, Meychat and WeChat were mediocre.

But overall, the Mickey chat team has shown strong combat effectiveness and has a steady first hand advantage. At this time, Talkbox, a similar product in Hong Kong, which sells voice walkie-talkies, has gained 34 million users.

In April 2011, Michao took the lead in introducing intercom functions by using Talkbox for reference. In May, Wechat quickly followed up, and finally, the number of users ushered in a blowout.

After a short period of backwardness, Zhang Xiaolong and his WeChat began to rush.

But for the Mi chat team, which has not fought a large social campaign, the weakness of basic performance begins to show up: the surge in the number of users leads to frequent outages of the Mi chat server, and even the mass drop of the Mi chat users in a certain area occurs.

In July, the Zhang Xiaolong team made a decisive blow.

In November, Ma Huateng stopped advertising outside WeChat in Beijing and Shanghai.

Soon, Lei Jun withdrew from competition with WeChat and devoted himself to the development of hardware.

Since then, Easy Credit from Ding Lei, China Mobile's chat, and Ma Yun's contacts have only caused very weak resistance to Wechat.

orgsrc=//img2018.cnblogs.com/news/66372/201811/66372-20181102163518594-36527291.jpg

At 4 a.m. on March 29, 2012, WeChat users broke through 100 million for 433 days.

It's almost a miracle in the history of the Internet: it took nearly 10 years for QQ to break through 100 million online users, five and a half years for Facebook and four years for Twitter.

The battle ended with the victory of Weixin, and at the same time, the war on Weibo was no longer necessary.

On April 19, 2012, when the circle of friends came online, Wechat completed the upgrading of communication tools to social platforms. The social circle of acquaintances based on mobile phones formally appeared, and Weibo and everyone suffered a heavy blow.

On August 23, when the public platform went online, a new public opinion ecology appeared on Wechat, and then the paper media began to avalanche.

In the Spring Festival of 2014, WeChat's red envelope was online, WeChat paid the number of users to Alipay, and the last barrier of Tencent to the electricity supplier was smashed.

In just three years, Zhang Xiaolong almost reinvented a Tencent.

The success of Wechat not only continued the prosperity of the social empire, but also aroused Tencent's great ambition: Wechat may become a new desktop system in the mobile era, completing a closed-loop social and business ecological chain.

The birth of small programs is probably the last puzzle of this ecological chain.

Ma Huateng once said that WeChat was the mobile internet that Tencent got

Set sail again

A new chapter in a hundred flowers bloom

Wechat took over the glory of the empire from QQ, but the wave of social entrepreneurship is far from over. Mobile social has since entered the Warring States era of oligarchy.

On the one hand, Mobile QQ, who was aphasic in the mobile war, took the lead in the reform, deeply cultivated and entertained, and socialized in the scene, which was sought after by young people.

On the other hand, the social world of strangers has spawned more segments of the market: a probe into the face of a major player, an interactive love account of soul, 's main hit of gay and lesbian friends, blued, 's main beat of lovers, and, more recently, what has become known as the "love story".

Finally, we don't know what the future social products will look like and whether the future Wechat will be subverted, but we always look forward to it.
