China Now Home to Largest Internet Population

China now has more online citizens than any other country, according to the nation’s state run media. Although only 16 percent of Chinese citizens are online, the massive populace made passing the U.S. for the top spot inevitable.
A growing percentage of China’s 221 million Internet users are reportedly coming from rural areas. Data also shows that the Chinese are more likely to use the Net for music than any other purpose, with email surprisingly only ranking fifth. Chinese corporations have invested billions in an effort to take advantage of the quickly growing industry, and native companies have begun to overtake the likes of Google and eBay as a result. Financial analysts predict that U.S companies will shift their focus to China more as a means to drive future profits.
