The whole morning I've seen you with your head down playing with your phone. What can be so consuming?

Ha ha, wasn't it the October 1 National Day Holiday recently? All my friends are already in travel photo sharing mode on Moments, every minute of every day there is someone uploading.

You mean Moments on WeChat? I know that this program is very hot in China, as almost everyone has an account. Before it was QQ Chat, now it is WeChat Moments.

Yes, that's right. It's the same way you use Facebook. This time there are even people who have mocked the October 1 holiday, saying that the big Golden Week photography competition on Moments has also kicked off, because all you see are friends sharing their holiday snaps on Moments.
