From Eastday.com: Chinese Spend More Time on Internet than TV
"Chinese people are now spending more time surfing the net than watching TV, according to results of a survey by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) published Thursday. The survey, of citizens of five Chinese cities, found that 79 percent of interviewees use the internet for information, and 55.1 percent prefer to read news on the internet. The average times spent surfing the net and watching TV were 2.73 hours and 1.29 hours, respectively. "To our surprise, only 63 percent of the interviewees use e-mail," Guo Liang, a researcher with the CASS said.""
"Five major web sites in the Chinese language, namely Sina, Sohu, Netease, Baidu and Yahoo are still ranked top ones by web users, and those that voted for Sina as the best among them were 30.9 percent."
