product insights from wechat

This — and other great articles on WeChat — is fantastic insight into evolving social / business models on the web. Could you go further into the business side of this? Seems ad revenues are not the dominant driver that they are for major US-based networks. True? Also, you reference WeChat’s respect for privacy. How does that translate to their policy on user data collection and “sale” for use by advertisers, ala Google/Facebook et al.?
