One of the many things I love about recording this show is busting a few myths and giving people an insight of the tech industry both inside and outside of the Silicon Valley. Today, I want to talk about the booming Internet in China and reveal more about Baidu, the company behind the 4th largest search engine in the world. But, did you know that Baidu also has innovative products & services that are enjoyed by millions of people worldwide? Their award-winning apps include Facemoji Keyboard, DU Recorder & more.
With the world’s largest Internet user population—731 million as of December 2016—and a long way to go to reach Internet penetration levels of developed countries, China’s Internet industry is growing in both scale and influence. As more and more Chinese users come online, Baidu continues to innovate to meet their changing needs and diverse tastes. they are aiming to serve the needs of our users and customers with products and solutions that prioritize the user experience and reflect our corporate culture – simple and reliable.
