Facebook Will Need to Invest in Cooperation with China

Facebook Will Need to Invest in Cooperation with China

Industry experts believe that the social network will need to invest in more than just censorship tools in order to lift a 7-year ban in China. The opinions were expressed after it became known last week that Facebook was developing software designed to suppress content. This move was widely seen as a prerequisite to ending the Chinese ban. China blocked access to Facebook in the wake of deadly ethnic riots in 2009 in order to prevent the sharing of information about the violence.


Facebook has been taking steps to lift the China’s block in recent years, recognizing censorship as the biggest requirement. However, other experts believe that the company also needs to invest in the Chinese ecosystem – startups and funds – in order to demonstrate that it is friend of China. Perhaps, the company will have to partner with a Chinese company and hand it control over censorship.

In the meantime, Chinese experts believe that Facebook’s efforts to censor news would need to be as good as the censorship practiced by the Chinese government itself. It must be noted that American tech firms often block content at the behest of government requests to comply with local laws: for example, Facebook has blocked content for France, Russia and Pakistan. It is unclear how its censorship would work in China, but experts think it would have to pre-empt and predict the government’s needs.

On the other hand, even if Facebook manages to break into the Chinese market, there’s no guarantee it will succeed there. WeChat is already ubiquitous in China and offers lots of similar features, including messaging, posting photos and sharing links.

In the meantime, although Facebook wants to break into China, the local authorities have far more to lose than gain from its appearance. The social network claims its mission is to connect the world, but it is hard to achieve that goal with 1.3bn people unable to access it. As for the Chinese officials, it would be a global propaganda coup and help promote the idea of “Internet sovereignty”, which assumes that states have the right to control how technology affects their citizens. These ideas and the company’s willingness to cooperate with the Chinese authorities alarm human rights groups.

No avatarI'm sorry China, your new internet censorship law doesn't include you telling the rest of the world/companies what to do. Privacy/freedom of speech is under attack enough as it is.

All the sudden I crave bleached rice, high fructose corn syrup, and extra MSG for dinner tonite.

No avatarHa Ha China. Block the rest of the world out all you want. If you ever make it to the top of the heap you'll spent just as much effort undoing all this censorship to retain you powerbase.
