in BBS’s rapid development from 2002 to 2008, BBS’s only community product rival is a weak interactive blog. But now? And the emergence of new product platform, such as micro-blog, WeChat, question and answer, and these new products is indeed pocketed popularity, even a lot of users daily use at most two applications: micro-blog and WeChat. It can be said that micro-blog, WeChat is a network of fast food culture, its fast update, and generally read, the truth is indeed very suitable for the social life rhythm, so these new products welcomed by users is also natural.
