If you love someone, ask him to open Taobao shop; If you hate someone, also ask him to open Taobao shop. This Chinese jingle becomes quite popular because it epitomizes the struggle of e-commerce experience from amounts of small to medium company entrepreneurs. As two of main domestic e-commerce platforms in China, “Taobao” and “Tmall” under Alibaba group, both meet a bottleneck and starting slow down growth rate in recent years.

Recently several shocking foreign news are constantly headlined in Chinese medias and gets amounts of public attention. One incident is “French police smashed the door in and shot a Chinese man, who spoke little French, had gone to the door holding a pair of scissors he had been using to prepare fish”; another is “United Airlines passenger Dr David Dao was violently dragged off overbooked flight”. Obviously we discover more or less intercultural conflicts behind the fact.
