Reflecting on a month in China

Jenny Connected

From October 8 th to November 2 nd , I was in China. We saw many of the highlights that tourists hope to see (in fact our trip was organized by China Highlights) – the Forbidden City in Beijing, The Great Wall, The Terracotta Warriors in Xian, the three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River, and much much more, I am also aware that we barely scratched the surface of China’s wonders. Trying to use the internet in China is an interesting experience.

Twitter Strategy Battle: Russia vs. China

Online Community Report

President Medvedev Visits Twitter Question: What do Russia and China’s Twitter strategies have in common?

Meanwhile the Chinese block Twitter and officially ignore it (but not the Chinese press: China Daily shows hundreds of articles this year mentioning Twitter).

China and Social Networks

Online Community Report

But there is one glaring absence in this new global conversation: China. China blocks most international blogs, including any using popular blog services such as Wordpress or Blogger. China blocks any international URL with the word "blog" in it. China also blocks Twitter, Facebook, and many bulletin board sites. China currently does not block most news or information sites, but social sites are currently off limits. But China isn't present.
