Even now, in China the government provides the strict policy of the censorship, and blocked many foreign websites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. It not means in China, there do not have any social media for people to communicate with each other. In this article: http://www.stateofdigital.com/social-media-in-china/ clearly shows 6 out of top 10 popular websites in China; for example, Sina Weibo, Tencent, RenRen, YouKu, Tudou and Baidu.
I strongly believe many people would like to explore the difference between Weibo and Twitter; and why Weibo is really successful in China.
The below points show what I think the difference between Weibo and Twitter.
For the Twitter, it follows the rule of the “simplicity”.
For the Weibo, is the platform of various social services and solutions; for example, the Email, games and website Apps.
In today’s society, Weibo is a “socialized” system and provide a space for people notice a certain discussion or topic and encourage retweets. In there, people also can add video files, music and own image in the every post. Moreover, in the Weibo also allow the users to insert graphical emoticons, the idea is the users can use this graphical emoticons to expressed their mood.
In addition, I am a super fan of Weibo, because it is not only a space of people to communicate and transfer what their think and/or believe; it is also a great idea for people to create the online shop. In this article: http://fuzhou.chinadaily.com.cn/e/2013-08/01/content_16862102.htm display one of the provinces in China called Fujian, in this province, the Internet users would like to online shopping, because it is easy, quick and saving money. Therefore, because of this reason, I am also creating an online shop in Weibo. It is perfect way for people to working at home and earns money. For the short term, the aim of Weibo marketing is impressions and promotion; in the impressions, it would be include how many visitors visited per day and the promotion would include what products you will going to sale and is it has any function? For the long term is the brand building. I believe it will be the complex process. The idea is when people sale the products in Weibo, the sellers can communicate the customers online, it is pretty cool; because when we go to shopping in the store, every seller only can communicate with one customer; however, in the online shop, one seller can communicate with two or more customers at the same time. It is the really good way to increased productivity. Through the high quality service is easy to accumulating and nurturing the followers.
So, I believe Weibo is a great invention in the second media age!! I love it!!
As everyone know, the Chinese government has imposed strict censorship on the media system; also the government creates three different organizations to censor news and information which might post sensitive topics of political regulation and national secrets. However, in this article is showing social media play critical role in social action, and the author believe “social media enables more people to know about the government actions.” so do you believe now the social media in China is going to be freedom???
Internet rumors is one kind of broad existence society culture phenomenon.Now the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate in China provide information that anyone who fabricate rumors on the Internet to defame or slander others can be held accountable on charges of libel.
In addition, Internet rumors is a terrible phenomenon, and it is immoral way to transfer the information which is not true. Also, it is my first time to agree with the government to over control the media. In China, most of people are jealous of people who are in the Western Countries have rights to have freedom speech for the political event. But I want to say the freedom speech is not equal to transfer any information which is not true. Moreover, some of serious case will have bad international effect, like protests, ethnic or religious unrest. Here is the article about China launches crackdown against online social media :http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/three-years-in-prison-if-your-slanderous-statements-are-shared-and-rted-china-launches-crackdown-against-online-social-media-8805690.html
Befor i read these two article, I believe Internet is a great idea for every single person and make the easy life for today’s society. But now, i believe everything in the world has two sides.Internet cannot become a tool to amplify rumors. Now, Weibo is a tool for some people to fabricate and spread rumors.For example, the Erma Company is a famous Internet company in China, according to Beijing police, Erma Company spreading online rumors and profiting from the illegal acts. As the statistics show that there are about 200 online users with more than 10 million followers on Sina and Tencent Weibo with this company, and have an unexpectedly negative effect on the public. Therefore,
Online rumors threaten victims’ privacy, harm their reputations, mislead the public and disrupt social order. The spread of rumors violates both morality and the law. Moreover, circulation of false information on the Internet can mislead young people into thinking they can resort to cyberspace to vent feelings, thus creating negative influence in shaping their outlook on life. http://chinanews.bannedbook.org/201308/police-detain-microbloggers-for-defaming-communist-role-model.html
The internet users have to observe laws and regulations and safeguard the bottom line of morality and authenticity of information. Otherwise, people won’t believe anything on the Internet.
Social media is a new important way to help the economy grow, therefore, how is soical media help small business grow??? and how these strategies work? is important for the people to concern.
Nowadays the Weibo is changing China,is it means now Chinese people have rights for free speech? Or Weibo is a rumor to make people believe they have rights for free speech?
in today’s society, more and more people like to use Internet to search information, but some of people donot believe anything in the Internet. so there is a article and talk about “why you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the Internet–Even if it’s true.”
with the technology developing, more and more people like to have new life in the Internet, like people might have their Blog to write own thought; also can create a discuss forum and allow other people to post their comments. Therefore, in order to hear customer’s voice, some corporates start to use Blogs and get closer with their customers. So i would to share the article which is about “the Best 10 Corporate Blog in the world”.
