Nowadays Information Technology developed very quickly, and new products used by information technology are more and more, and people benefit from this change increasingly. But those people who benefitted mostly lie in developed districts, these people who lie in developing and undeveloped districts seldom or never benefit from the development of information technology. They know a little about new information technology and its products. That do not favor for social development as a whole. To get rid of “digital divide” which extends increasingly between developed districts and developing and undeveloped districts, Internet Technology should be used to popularize information technology at large. According to 29th statistics of internet development, up to December, 2011, there are 513 million net citizens, 356 million mobile net citizens and 136 million rural net citizens in China. The increase rate of net citizens who receive education below primary school and junior high school was beyond that of the overall citizens. Every people can surf the internet in their village in China. On the base, making use of popularization of information technology, people in developing and undeveloped districts can know the development of information technology in time, and increase their interest in information technology and its products, and grip some opportunity for person or region, and realize the economical and social and personal development finally.
