Chinese broadband users above the age of 13 number 286 million, nearly double that of the U.S. broadband population, says a new report from market analysts Netpop Research. In five years, Netpop forecasts, that number will double. While 35 percent of American users are under age 35, in China younger users make up 73 percent of the online population.

Facebook lookalike RenRen 人人, is visited by 23% of Chinese broadband users. 51.com (19%), and Kaixin001 开心网 (12%) are the other most popular social sites.
