Ok let’s revisit Frassadys’ Make Money online Newsletter, today we’ll take a look at Frassadys’ Make Money online 41515 Newsletter-Another Microblog From The World’s Most Populous Country.
It’s hard to imagine that China has 1.4 billion people with 19% of the world’s people-the US has 4.4 %. China also has the second largest economy with $11.3 billion GDP. The US was at $17.4 billion.
You would think that social media would escalate as fast as in the United States, but it hasn’t because of,I believe you know,rather unnatural political impediments.
The microblog to which I’m referring is called Weibo,which is,like Twitter in the US, absolutely huge in China’s social media platforms.
All the impediments rests with the Chinese government as they obviously put more emphasis on state conformity and control,over the liberalization of it’s citizens.
Internet censorship has recently took a turn for the worst, as the Chinese government, has gone from internet intervention Great Firewall, to a new more powerful control technique called Great Cannon.
This new system was created to intercept traffic that was going to Baidu,the largest Chinese search engine,and inject control code that was engineered by the state.
(For more on this,I’ll direct you to a NY Times article http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/11/technology/china-is-said-to-use-powerful-new-weapon-to-censor-internet.html?_r=0).
At any rate for this Frassadys’ Make Money online Newsletter, the social media in China is growing unrestrained at a 36% clip,and Weibo now has 500 million users.
With internet users in China approaching 50%-the US is at about 85%- Weibo is now as significant to internet users in China,as Twitter is in the US.
After the July 2009 Ürümqi riots, the Chinese shut down the microblogging services including the first Weibo service Fanfou.
In addition,many in demand non China-based microblogging services like Twitter and Facebook have been blocked by the control systems set in place by the state.
One very interesting piece is that Sina, the company that owns Weibo, is traded on Nasdaq,and Oracle Social Cloud is incorporating picture and video sharing platform Instagram and Weibo in their Social Relationship Management or SRM platform.
The regulator’s statement said since the start of the year, 6,038 complaints against Sina were made.
The government sited many microbloggers for “obscenity”,”heresy”, “fraud”, terrorism”,and “pornography” and other “western ideas” adverse to the Communist regime.
These terms have totally different meaning in China however. Many Weibo microbloggers have had their accounts shutdown, for any of the above transgressions.
So for this Frassadys’ Make Money online Newsletter,despite the continued threats by the state to shut it down, insiders or Chinese technical writers,believe that these threats of “shutdown” are more of bluff,than reality.
Why? Well it turns out that the threat of shut down is more like bandwidth penalties than a actual close down.
Also,they’re not likely to shutdown Weibo because first, there would be a significant public backlash and second,the ownership of Sina supports Xi Jinping’s party.
Do you think there is a bit of a tug o’ war between Capitalism and Communism?
Furthermore,Instagram, which is owned by Facebook and recently instituted the ability to post 15-second videos as well as images and photos, is briskly becoming one of the most popular sites among Millennials,in China.
So obviously the social media is not only significant to the younger generation, it is also, becoming essential to economic interests.
In addition to the young for our Frassadys’ Make Money online Newsletter, companies and commercial interests both inside and outside of China are enthusiastic users of Weibo as well.
More than 5,000 companies and 2,700 media companies are believed to use the site regularly.
Under those circumstances,Weibo has to keep politically sensitive terms censored,but keep economic and socially responsible communiques moving through the social media.
Ultimately, the quid pro quo relationship between the ruling party and Sina, will mitigate the hold the State has on Weibo and the relative social media.
This would be in contrast to the hold the State has on other media, such as Television,Newspapers and radio.
Keep in mind that there are other social media sites that bear the name Weibo, these include Tenchent Weibo, Sohu Weibo, and NetEase Weibo,however the major social media Weibo platform is Sina Weibo.
