WeChat is not only the "King of Social Networking" in China, but it is also the Special Database most time-killing app. According to CNNIC data, as of June 2019, instant messaging apps accounted for 96.5% of Chinese netizens, much higher than other Internet apps, and WeChat played a role in instant messaging to a large extent. Although applications such as Duoshan, Toilet MT, and Chatbao are better than WeChat in some functions and have a better user experience, WeChat has the largest social relationship Special Database chain in China, and no social application can replace this complex relationship chain.
If the relationship chain is not changed, WeChat cannot be replaced. Therefore, despite the Special Database great momentum of the challengers, the status of WeChat remains, and the challengers gradually become lonely. Once a user’s enthusiasm and curiosity for an app wears off, they leave quietly, and there are few things that keep users going for the long haul. The core of social applications is people. If there are not enough people, who will you socialize with? Where have people gone? Everyone is on WeChat. WeChat is getting more and more bloated, but we Special Database can't leave. We also hoped to see a challenger stand out, but we never jumped out of the circle of WeChat.
After all, the reason is that there are too many products under the giants. Taking Baidu as an Special Database example, there are 78 applications under Baidu Cloud Computing Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd., 74 applications under Beijing Baidu Netcom Science & Technology Co., Ltd, and nearly 200 apps under Baidu. There are as many as 129 apps under the developer account of Tencent Technology (Shenzhen) Company Limited, and 32 apps under the developer account of Tencent Technology (Beijing) Company Special Database Limited. The giants have too many products and too wide product lines.
