Dangerous SNS site in China

with one comment

Social network service (SNS), including facebook, twitter, linkedin, etc., they have a complete privacy control. (Because GFW reasons, ordinary Chinese people can not access these sites.) However, SNS sites in China, are different.

There are two major SNS sites in China, the following I give my experience.

I was its registered user. This site does not respect the user is: free to delete your post (well, we know you have been forced by the Government), a large number of blinking flash ads (I had to write filters), a large number of e-mail notification can not cancel … The most terrible is that, ignoring the user’s privacy.

I am very concerned about privacy. (Who do not care?) Because of the special circumstances of China’s Internet, I did not fill my details in the SNS site.  But even so, it is also constantly send me emails, saying that users find me. I was disgusted, not because some people find me, but because I am in its so-called “Privacy Settings” has simply not find any “no one was allowed to search me” option.

I feedback to the technical department, without any response. And with its poor user experience, I removed my user name immediately. Then until now, ALSO continued to send me emails, saying “Keep my data, as long as I logon again, the data is still” … I began to regret at the fxxking registration. Set to spam, clean up.

2,’s user experience is better than, with many of my friends are on it, so I registered. Of course, do not fill my details. I have been naive to think is “relatively clean”. After all, no spam mail, no evil, at least look no evil.

But something happened on the first few days: I login, the system shows the message: “you might know people: XXX in the Add him to your friend list?”

Of course I know him, he is one of my friends. The key is that I can not fill out additional information like work, I believe that he could not write, I and he do not have any common friends, then the system is HOW TO KNOW We know? Finally, I still did not add him, and to delete some information —- I do not like to be monitored.

The site is bad, the site is dangerous.
I prefer to tell my information to foreign strangers’ VPN, were reluctant to tell a website in China.

  1. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after browsing through
    a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless,
    I’m certainly pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!
