A telling infographic released by Etude IBM Retail shows post-millenial internet preferences across the world. 

'Post-millennial' refers to the generation born between the mid-1990s and early 2000s. The infographic shows a stark difference between China and much of the rest of the world. 

Where Facebook is the most used app by youth in most countries, WeChat is number one in China, followed by QQ, Taobao, Baidu, and TMall. Apps like Youtube, Instagram, Google, Twitter and Snapchat — which show popularity in the other countries on the infographic — are inaccessible in China.
