China's soft economy, which is set to grow at the slowest pace in over a decade, has caused a slowdown in China's advertising market. Major Chinese companies such as Baidu, Renren, and Tencent have recently warned of slowing advertising revenue growth in the fourth quarter.

"The absence of the Olympic Games event and decelerating economic growth in China may slow revenue growth rates for the online-advertising industry as a whole, including our own online-advertising business," Tencent said.
