No Freedom On The Web For The Chinese

The Internet is limitless in a way. You can do so much without having to go far physically. The World Wide Web serves as the portal to unlimited possibilities and you are free to explore it whether for work or for fun. And that is the case for the majority of the people who are free to use the Internet without any limitations. However, that is not the case if you live in China because of the government’s extreme Internet censorship. You don’t have access to lots of content that other Internet users across the world can view on the web.

This totalitarian approach is the Chinese government’s way of limiting Western influence over its people. The Chinese obey their laws no matter how outrageous they may be. They are also stripped of many rights that are otherwise enjoyed by the majority of the people all over the world. If they have free access to the web, they will realize that life in China is not normal and that their human rights have been violated for a long time now. It may trigger dissent and encourage more people to protest …

The Edge Of Chinese Technology

China is more popularly known as the land of kung-fu, Chinese food, and Confucius. It boasts of an ancient civilization that flourished for centuries and remained resilient against foreign invaders. If the Great Wall of China isn’t testament enough of their courage and determination to defend their country from outsiders then I don’t know what is. But if you look at China today, it shows a delicate balance of their rich history but as well as of their unparalleled mastery of advanced technologies that rules the world today.

Technology is everywhere and we can’t stop them from conquering all aspects of our lives. Most innovators are actually of Western influence but the growing interest and capability of the Asian market to keep up with tech advancements and production only goes to show that not only Westerners dominate this market today. For instance, China is now home to numerous skyscrapers that defy reality. Many Chinese experts have likewise pioneered in advanced medical and commercial technology that is now used all over the planet. China is even ambitious enough to invade the market of military technology which is now dominated by America.…

Are The Chinese Really Missing Out On Social Media

Social media is all over the web. People from all walks of life enjoy an hour or two of virtually doing nothing but browsing the World Wide Web for leisure. Meanwhile, other people found an opportunity to make money on the web and give them all the more reason to go online daily to earn a living. There is a long list of social networks that abound the web today. It is already hard to keep track since new ones pop up every now and then, but of course, nothing beats the classic and all-time favorites that are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and so on.

However, not everyone gets to enjoy the benefits of these social networks. For instance, the government restricts contents of what an individual can access in China. The Chinese government has actually been jokingly referred to by many as “the great firewall of China” because of the extreme Internet censorship practiced there. They can go as far as blocking sites, restricting access, monitoring your online activity and making it look like you sent something over the web but are actually intercepted by the government …

Less Social Media in China

We live in a modern world dominated by technology, advancements, and social media. Everywhere you go and wherever you look, technology stares you right in the face. Even our own homes are full of gadgets and tech knick-knacks that are supposed to make our lives easier and more comfortable (even when things break down). No need to get your hands dirty when a cool gizmo can do the trick for you, right? And that is the case in most parts of the world (even in developing countries). Technology use is fast becoming the way of life.

We all know China is an emerging global superpower. We have heard of the many mind-blowing advancements happening all over China and just how far their economy has taken them today, but we are also aware that China is a land of many cases of human rights abuse. The country itself is a land full of no-nos. No freedom of expression on a lot of things. Extreme Internet censorship also restricts Chinese citizens from utilizing the full scope of the web and many social media sites are likewise banned in the …
