Instagram is a tool of the trade for 32-year-old Tricia Wang, a sociologist and consultant working in China and documenting the wildfire spread of new social-media platforms like Weibo and Renren.

"I do all this to understand how people use technology." These photos and captions are from her Instagram feed documenting her work and life in rural China.
