We all know that, sooner or later, the rising post-00s generation, kids born from 2000 to 2009, will eventually replace the older generations as the dominating force of internet. But the change seems to be coming upon us faster than expected.

During Asia Beat held on March 18, Wu Xinhong, founder and CEO of China’s leading photo app developer Meitu, shared a set of interesting data, giving us a peek into how this trend completely changed their the face of their company.

“In 2015, we noticed that China’s post-00s gen are surprisingly active on social networks. Their active degree on Meipai, a video editing app developed by Meitu, is three times that of the post-90s gen and five times that of the post-80s gen. It’s beyond our capacity to amass data from all companies in this sector, but this data alone is enough to underline the imminent exploration of the post-00 user group.”
