Domestic translocal home town networks and international diasporic networks are now enabled anew in realities of daily communication through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The phenomenon of working-class ICTs and rapid change-over in ICT adoption and use is a parallel concept for social mobility. The centers of capital concentration in China are increasingly wired, and working-class ICTs are filling in the wide gaps of uneven informational development. From the perspective of both the idea of public space for citizen expression in the Chinese city and the public sphere of civil society and its dependence on a critical media, it is suggested that the evolving information society in China will continue to depend on the use of ICTs and their informational potential.
