Here’s why a war has started between Chinese Internet giants Tencent and Alibaba - The Next Web: "And Tencent has the power of communities on its side, which could easily become a force to be reckoned with. QQ had close to 800 million active accounts at the end of 2012, while WeChat has nearly 400 million users in all, out of which there are 195 million monthly active users. This means that any new initiative rolled out by Tencent, such as e-commerce, could very possibly tip the scale to its favor.
