Generation Mobile: Digital Media and Youth in China


There are more than 800 million netizens in China. Among them, nearly 98 percent are smartphone users by 2018. This is an era of mobile Internet access for almost all users. In this context, what should Chinese digital media do to cope with new consumption scenarios, users’ habits, and technological trends represented by AI? Can they find new ways to evolve accordingly?

In this wave of mobile internet, young Chinese born in the 2000s, including those born after 2005, are becoming new active consumers. What are their different tastes and consumption patterns for media? What do we know about their views on self-awareness, world outlook on the world and social relationships?

Vice President of Tencent and Pacific Leadership Fellow Caitlyn Chen will discuss these topics. The event will be in Chinese with live English interpretation.
