China is now home to 632 million Internet users, a government agency said Monday, although use of social networks has dropped amid a crackdown. The Asian giants Internet population — defined as those who have gone online at least once in the past six months — has increased by 14 million since January, according to the China Internet Network Information Centre (CNNIC). Mobile phone users represent a large share of the online population, the centre said, with 527 million people in China accessing the Internet using mobile devices in the six months to June. According to CNNIC, 257 million people used social networking sites during the period, down from 278 million in its last set of figures in December — a 7.4 percent drop.
