Is the Internet same for everybody in this world? No, it's different for Chinese Internet users, as now it is almost a decade that Google, Facebook, Twitter, The New York Times, Chinese Wikipedia and Instagram and thousands of other foreign websites blocked there. The local Chinese sites, apps, and online services fill the gap and serve the same functions. Their massive dosed censored system competes with Western liberal democracy. People in China are not even interested in knowing and got accustomed to the plethora of sites and apps built by locals only.
When the world is becoming a small village, the Chinese still want to go with their closed society and traditions. They are successful in keeping their people away from the Western open society culture. All that doesn't mean that people over there don't use cell phones, smartphones, they do, but the West is not able to penetrate or spread their liberal ideas.
The Western market lures the Chinese that their apps won't work outside their country, but the ones created by Google or other companies would work worldwide, but still, there seems to be no impact on the people. The biggest Chinese market is out of reach for most of these big Internet giant companies.
It's not only the Chinese government but its people especially young ones shows apathy to Western apps, even if provided for free, they won't use it. The people are patriotic and optimistic and happy with their localized apps. They feel that Western apps are against the development of socialism with Chinse characteristics.
