Ren Miaoyin is among a burgeoning group of young Chinese singers who take advantage of YY, a real-time video-based social network, to hold live concerts. Each Thursday evening, YY will invite a few singers to join its weekly music channel "YY Top 10", which presents ten most popular Chinese songs to the online audiences by live broadcast. It was 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. Ren arrived at a studio of YY to attend the latest "YY Top 10" as guest singer. The program could be a great chance for a novice singer like Ren to promote herself. Nearly 20,000 audiences watched Ren's performance that evening, which was a satisfying result. There are also a large number of full-time online singers who give performance at home, taking advantage of the real-time video communication. Audiences can send virtual gifts to their beloved online singers, who in turn can convert the virtual gifts into cash money. According to a staff of YY, a popular online singer can earn more than 10,000 yuan (1,610 U.S. dollars) from virtual gifts. As of September 2012, YY has over 400 million registered users and 66.1 million monthly active users, making it an amicable platform for singers who wish to promote themselves via the internet.
