Microbloggers represent China's fastest growing online population. Last month the State Internet Information Office announced that the nation now had more than 300 million registered users of "weibos." After Chinese censors blocked Twitter in 2009, several domestic versions emerged with enhanced services such as photo and video embedding.

Reuters reports that China's ruling Communist Party plans to intensify control over online social media and instant messaging tools. Although analysts argue it is unlikely to shut down what has become an important valve for monitoring and easing social pressures.

E-commerce is one of China's most rapidly growing internet segments. According to figures from the China Internet Network Information Center, China had 485 million Internet users by the end of June, of which 142 million shopped online. Meanwhile, a report released by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) finds that China's online retailing sector is presently worth $74 billion a year, and could increase to $314 billion by 2015.

The e-commerce market will account for 7.4 percent of the nation's total retail value in 2015, jumping from 3.3 percent currently, the report BCG report argues.
