Chinese people have no access to social networks

Chinese authorities blocked all the programmes and services that allowed them to visit prohibited sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. This was reported by the The New York Times (Chinese version of which is also blocked for users in China).

For a short period of time 3 more companies announced that their sites are also blocked. Chinese authorities advise all companies, which are interested in running their own business on the People's Republic of China territory to use private networks for the information transfers.
Several foreign Media experts notes that if this situation continues, all the informational agencies and bureaus that transfer news from Asia will have to move from Beijing to Tokyo.

We remind that there is a strict Internet censorship in China. All the sites are scanning on the existence of the key words, that are connected with the information about state security. Also there is a “blacklist” resources filtering. The country’s government blocked the access to portals which, according to its point of view, spread prohibited information promoting violence, pornography etc.

Each video will be published in the Internet only after being modernized.
From 2010 Chinese people, (due to the population) being the most numerous group of the Internet users, have lost the access to the Google search.

Beijing explains that this virtual policy is a measure that will secure  mental health of the oncoming generation.

The Google search engine and other companies servers have been blocked on the whole territory of China on November 8 of the current year. The representatives of  SecurityLab said that Google blocking had been coincide with the process of the Communist Party Congress were elected their new leaders.

The information about blocking was transferred by the Chinese on-line monitoring service GreatFire. According to the site’s information, the authorities of the country deprived users of visiting Google search, Google mail etc.

Such services like Google maps, Google Docs,  Google Analytics, Google Drive had been also blocked.

“The Chinese government took a step up to the whole independent of their Internet from the global network”, - notes GreatFire. Analysts think that the reason of this blocking probably is connected with the fact that Google had been for a long time disputing with the Chinese government about the censorship in the cyber space.

“Izvestia” reminds that 2 years ago the Chinese government came into a conflict with Google, demanding of the company to block searches of certain words and transfer information about users (in specific cases).  The American company rejection led to the the blocking of the Hon-Kong page.

The situation becoming more complicated due to the wide popularity of Google Android among Chinese users. According to the representatives of, this can lead to an undesirable for government effect - more Chinese Internet users will know about Internet censorship.

Russian Internet does not afraid of censorship

The economic of Russian Internet raise the grows rate and its influence as a media channel becomes stronger. RAEC sets a price for a value of the Russian Internet as a several bln dollars and prognoses its increase by 30% in 2012.

2012 discovered a new phenomenon in Russia - the state, for the first time was interested in the Internet sphere. And the first measures concerning this were prohibitive. So, due to this a law about child security from the Information, that provide the creation of the blacklist of sites and blocking illegal content in the Runet.

The first question was about the overall results of the Internet of the current year and also about the “child security from the information” law. In whole, experts pointed out the unavailability of the infrastructure to execute a law and the ambiguities in the questions concerning a content marking and blacklist.

According to experts points of view the main value of this law is that parents began to pay more attention on what their children do in the Internet, said Yuri Sinodov, the chief editor of He also explained that this question is far from real problem of business. And this is very good that this law isn’t used as a mechanism to pressure business.

It is essential that a part of Internet users are worried about the “law of the Internet”, which deputies are going to make by the next year and of course users afraid of the Internet censorship. So, how tough will be the Internet control?

Generally, the representatives of this sphere do not deny the possibility of a “soft Chinese variant” of the Internet censorship. But also they consider this way as an unlikely but although a possible one .

Oleg Seidak, the head of the FINAM Global fond noticed that “Russian Internet is characterized by more technically educated and mentally active users groups. And right this groups are the main users of the information that can be prohibited by the state regulation.

I think that active and mass State actions towards the limitation of the access In the Internet can lead to a great increase of the users awareness of the ways to avoid this limitations that will have a wholly opposite effect that was not expected.

The state can close this technical possibilities only by using the Chinese variant, that means not only blocking access to the certain information or resources but also a blocking of a part of ways that allow to avoid such blocking. However this method is too cruel and this can cause the “arm race” between Internet users and a state, that none of the countries can win without destroying the Internet at all”, concerning the current situation.

China intends to straighten up the Internet control

According to a web resources, Chinese authorities considered the possibility of the adoption of legal measures, aimed at “stopping rumors and vulgarity spreading”

We should remind that in the beginning of the current year the rule that had micro blogers to register stating their real identifying data came into a force in China. It was made, as it was said, to secure Internet users interests and for the improvement of the trust in the web”. This measure, according to the authorities will not harm the development of micro blogs but will make such services better”. If the subscriber refuse to state his passport data and the phone number he won’t be able to leave any comments.

This offered rules will oblige users to prove their identity concluding any agreement on getting services for access the Internet. The matter is about both fixed lines and mobile Internet. It is not known yet how this new measures will be realized in practice. Observers notes that Chinese citizens are obliged to provide documents signing the contracts with the Internet-providers.

However, any additional limitations, according to user’s point of view, will negatively effect a development of the Internet sphere and will limit the freedom of speech in more intense. Even now Chinese web companies use special programs for a content monitoring, messages with “illegal content” blocking and deleting. “Politically unconscious” posts, “provocative publications’ etc. are filtered and deleted.
