China to Tencent: WeChat Moments ads appear too frequently

Two months after WeChat coyly took wraps off its in-feed ads on Moments, we review Tencent's data from a survey of 6,215 Chinese users about their sentiment towards news-feed ads in general, including those on QQ and Sina Weibo. The bad news is that many people complain about ads appearing too frequently. On the bright side, many of the complaints focus on ads for low-quality or counterfeit products. Chinese consumers did not object to advertising that they found relevant and engaging. Note: The text on the graphics provided is in Chinese. Our captions (underneath the images) explain the graphics to those who don't read Chinese.
