Sogou situation is very special, not only at the product level, but also in the circle. First of all, Sogou in the "who is the enemy, who is a friend," the revolution is the most important issue on the chaos, it is difficult to have an ally of friends. The first competitor is Baidu, a Tencent 360360 foreign enemies, but the internal competition is the first 360 Sogou Sogou, but with the parent company Sohu and Sohu group good relations, traditional enemies of sina, Youku also won’t tell you good.
360 users and Sogou almost Sogou revenue is its 40%, the amount of search is its 2/3, are not far away. We rise a little, they fall a bit easily leveled. Old week (Zhou Hongyi) also said that the other have been killed, you do not die, but also the more dry, so I do not play the old week is not traded.

in the future will soon be realized: first, the Internet will be more comprehensive and profound, including the advent of Google glasses, iWatch watches, etc., they will be the whole digital.
