Qzone (Chinese: QQ空间) is a social networking website, which was created by Tencent in 2005. It allows users to write blogs, keep diaries, send photos, listen to music, and watch videos. Users can set their Qzone background and select accessories based on their preferences so that every Qzone is customized to the individual member's taste. However, most Qzone accessories are not free; only after buying the "Canary Diamond" can users access every service without paying extra.[1]

According to a report published by Tencent, possibly surpassing other social networking websites like Facebook and MySpace in China.[2] Qzone is rapidly growing: as of November 2013, it already had 623.3 million users.[3] 150 million Qzone users update their accounts at least once a month. This makes Qzone one of the most active communities in the whole industry.[4]
