Facebook Might Be Unbanned in China

Facebook Might Be Unbanned in China

The social network might manage to get China to lift its 7-year ban thanks to recently developed secret software to censor posts. Facebook developed the way to suppress publications from appearing in news feeds in specific locations. The company emphasizes that only the visibility of the posts would be suppressed, not the posts themselves.


Facebook explained that the company was of course interested in China, and put much effort to understand and learn more about the country in order to approach it. The country banned Facebook after the Urumqi riots 7 years ago in order to stem the flow of information about the unrest where 140 people died. China’s ban denied Facebook access to the world’s largest population of Internet subscribers, which could be key to the network’s continued growth.

The company would offer the software to enable third parties to track popular stories and posts that gain visibility across Facebook. Those partners would decide whether such posts could appear in users’ feeds. However, Facebook hasn’t announced the presentation of this software to China yet.

It must be said that American tech firms have a practice of complying with government requests to block posted content in keeping with local laws. Facebook did restrict content in several countries in 2015 – for example, in Russia it restricted content that breached the integrity of the country and local laws forbidding activities like mass public riots and the promotion and sale of drugs; access to items in Pakistan was also restricted due to allegations that local blasphemy legislation was violated; in France, content was restricted under laws prohibiting denying of the Holocaust or condoning terrorism. By the way, in France Facebook also removed posts of an image relating to the November 2015 terrorist attacks due to allegations that they violated local legislation related to the protection of human dignity.

At the same time, the social network has been heavily criticized in the past few months by people accusing Facebook of failing to efficiently filter out fake news stories that may have swayed the outcome of the US presidential election. In response, Facebook said that it was choice of real people, not virtual voters.

MadmanMac avatarWow, I cant see how anyone after reading this would still consider using facebook as anything other than an account to link free games to. Except for the caveat at the end there I read a LOT of blah blah censorship blah control blah kiss blah blah your blahing freedom and blahing privacy blah blah bye blah bye.

No avatarThe Communist Party of China (CPC) realized how easily it was to maneuver and sway public opinions via artificial FB Likes, such as in the case of pro-Trump/anti-Clinton news posts in the U.S. elections... any potential controversial anti-government FB posts could get censored, giving them the CPC propaganda leverage... their cyberspace army will be working overtime if FB comes to fruition in the Middle Kingdom, currently ruled by hegemonic social media powerhouse Weixin.
