This essay will first explain some social network frames, and then will examine the operating mechanism of WeChat and Bilibili and how they are related to value of trade on these platforms. It is shown clearly that different ecommerce social networks lead to different results in ecommerce income. Wechat focus on 1 to 1 social mode and building ecommerce on the relationship between merchants and customers while Bilibili focus on building communities which eventually leads to community economy. This research result may help platform builders and merchants to choose their own strategies in ecommerce.
