TUDOU: NETIZEN POWER AND THE RISE OF CREATIVE


CONTENT IN DIGITAL CHINA TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19 | 3:00 PM | 120 M


TUDOU.com is not the “YouTube of China.” Or, that’s not what they are now. Launched in 2005, Tudou is one of the largest video sites in China, where users can upload, view and share clips. By 2007, Tudou had over 50% of the online video market in China, and by summer of this year, over 170 million unique visitors. With the annual Tudou Video Festival, Chinese netizens are empowered to create their own content, including this year’s winner, THE WAR ON INTERNET ADDICTION, a Machinima film that was shot inside the World of Warcraft game, with the actors being 100 gamers who performed via their characters inside the system. Tudou has also produced their first internet drama series, an overall strategy to target China’s 250 million young netizens.


Tudou co-founder Gary Wang will provide insight on the company’s history, their overall strategy, and navigating China’s content restrictions. This presentation will precede a screening of THE WAR ON INTERNET ADDICTION.
