Forbes China Celebrity 100
The Forbes China Celebrity 100 is a list published annually by Forbes that ranks the influence of Chinese celebrities. First published in 2004, it is similar to Celebrity 100 also published by Forbes. Factors that are taken into account include income, search engine hits, as well as exposure in newspapers, magazines, and television.
In 2010, the list started to include Chinese celebrities born in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other countries or regions. Prior to 2010, it only included celebrities born in mainland China. In 2016, the list was discontinued due to Forbes ceasing its operations in China. In 2017, the list was revived.
