Abstract

With the rapid development of Chinese society, people’s lives have become increasingly fragmented, and social alienation has been gradually on the rise. The rise of WeChat meets people’s needs of interaction and communication in an increasingly fragmented society and constitutes an indispensable part of people’s daily lives. In 2014, China’s WeChat continued to develop and brought out many new functionalities. This article presents the development of WeChat and the problems arising out of WeChat’s development from six perspectives: communicative functions and features, development status and characteristics, major apps and features, security status and features, management status and features, trends, and prospects.
