Chinese bloggers : 60 million by end of 2006

Reuters reports there will be 60 million Chinese bloggers by the end of 2006.

Interesting stats in the Reuters report:

  • China is the world’s second-largest Internet market after the United States with more than 110 million users.
  • Currently 36.82 million blogs kept by 16 million people.
  • Number of Chinese bloggers is expected to hit 60 million by the end of this year.
  • The expected 60 million bloggers would account for more than half of China’s 110 million netizens.
  • The number of bloggers in China will hit 100 million by 2007.
  • Nine percent of Chinese bloggers write every day, 29 percent write once to three times a week, while 35 percent write four to six times a week.

It is China though, not the United States. The Communist Party monitors Internet discussion and has closed down some outspoken blogs.
