  • 6. WeChat Censorship  All media outlets in mainland China are required to operate a form of self-censorship to keep themselves in line with what authorities don‟t want being discussed.  “The red line”: under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party, you can't publish comments critical of the party, but you can do satire or sarcasm.  As the international users keep increasing, there is controversy over whether the conversations will be monitored or censored.  Is WeChat poised to take over the world outside China, the US included? Chinese web giant Tencent has denied claims that there is global censoring of its popular chat app WeChat.
  • 7.  WeChat is not just popular in China. Most of its more than 300 million users are Chinese, but 70 million live outside the country.  the Chinese tech giant behind WeChat, has appeared to enact censorship measures to placate the Chinese authorities, who have a knee-jerk aversion to any information not under their control and therefore built the notorious Great Fire Wall, a sophisticated state apparatus that filters out unwanted “noises” and blocks “vermin websites.”
