Tencent CEO Ma Huateng said the revenue and active users of the main service of Tencent increased compared to the first quarter in 2013. This can let Tencent maintain the revenue and cash flow health, also it is good for the long-term development of some service, These include the promotion of WeChat in the international market ,online video content and the regional expansion of e-commerce business. Tencent will continue to increase the investment on innovation and its open platform in order to strengthen their own position in the Internet world.
It seems Tencent is moving to the right direction in expanding its service.
1. Internationalization. Tencent have the capability to play an important role in the international stage. they have excellent IM products(QQ and WeChat) which are used by many Chinese. Compared to MSN, QQ is more functional and easier to use. It should be able to attract users from other countries. The reason why its performance in the world is not as expected is because the promotion of QQ is not so frequent. We cannot see many ads about QQ out of Chiina.
2. Innovation. Also they should put much effort on innovation to get rid of the impression of people that they only know how to copy from others. They have enough cash and they can invest money on attracting many talented people and on technology innovation.

This is a translation from Chinese where the original meaning should be Public soup window. But because there is car called Volkswagen which in Chinese is "大众", so they give it this name.
