Ban wechat to ask for trouble, apple joined the boycott, Tencent accepted “free endorsement”

Compared with several well-known Internet companies, Huawei under Ren Zhengfei is a bit introverted. Not only does it lag behind some Internet companies in terms of the popularity of its founders, but also many people know the strength of Huawei only after Huawei has been constantly suppressed. The deliberate global targeting has made it difficult for Huawei to move forward in various businesses. However, when Ren Zhengfei was interviewed, he even ridiculed the media: we should thank him for his endorsement of Huawei. < / P > < p > to some extent, the continuous suppression and upgrading has promoted Huawei’s reputation, while more and more countries support Huawei on 5g, which further highlights Huawei’s voice in 5g field. Of course, the crackdown also has a negative impact on Huawei. The supply interruption in the chip field will make Huawei face the loss of its share of the high-end mobile phone market. However, after the crackdown on Huawei achieved some results, the United States began to target Tencent’s social product wechat. < p > < p > in fact, it has been some time since the wechat ban was issued. Although Tencent did not respond positively to the possible impact of the ban, when the financial report was issued, the senior executives of Tencent department made a statement that the US market is not indispensable to wechat. It only accounts for 2% of Tencent’s total revenue, which shows that without the U.S. market, wechat is still the dominator in the social field. < / P > < p > in fact, the potential impact of this ban is not only to affect Tencent, but also to enterprises that have cooperative relations with wechat in China because of the fuzzy boundary of “any transaction”. According to media reports, dozens of enterprises have joined hands to boycott the ban on wechat, and apple, which some netizens are worried about recently, has joined the boycott, which means that apple is opposed to the wechat ban. < p > < p > Apple supports wechat with actions, which is consistent with the goals of several other companies. Wechat, with 1.2 billion users in China, now has a volume equivalent to a traffic distributor. Wechat is one of the few choices to seek user dividends in the wechat ecosystem. Moreover, if the ban is extended to China, then Apple’s sales will decline, and the future revenue of these enterprises will be greatly reduced, and the market advantage accumulated before will disappear. < / P > < p > interestingly, although the wechat ban has not been formally decided to be implemented, the current situation shows that the consequences of banning wechat are self inflicted. According to the statistics of the third-party data of foreign media, the average download volume of wechat in the last six days is 41% higher than that of the previous period, which also leads to a 30% increase in the download volume of wechat substitutes. In addition, because only wechat is involved in the ban, the number of QQ downloads overseas has tripled in a week. < / P > < p > the emergence of such a result, perhaps everyone did not expect, and Tencent can only “reluctantly” accept. You know, Tencent’s second quarter financial report shows that the number of QQ users has a further downward trend. However, in the context of the ban, the popularity and download volume of wechat have not decreased but increased, and QQ has also increased its social market in the United States. It is really an accident that Tencent has made a free “endorsement”. On the whole, the US ban not only does not support its own enterprises, but also objectively promotes the development of Tencent’s social map. It is really smart but also misled. Domestic enterprises do not support it because the cooperative relationship with wechat is related to the future trend of enterprises. The increase of download volume shows that there is still a market for wechat to explore overseas. Just like Huawei, the “free endorsement” has let more Americans know the existence of wechat. As the saying goes, follow the trend and always think about the interests of American enterprises. However, it is the US enterprises that suffer from the losses after each move. This is not only to overestimate their own strength, but also to underestimate the potential of the Chinese market. If you insist on going against the trend, the final result must be asking for trouble. Continue ReadingASMC, a lithography maker, was one of TSMC’s 14 top suppliers last year
