Its no secret that the Chinese government isnt a proponent of a free and open internet, but for some it appears that the Great Firewall doesnt go far enough. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Chinese Communist Party released a call for additional reforms today, citing social networks and mobile messaging apps as areas of particular concern. Following the increasing power of online media, Internet media and industry management has lagged far behind the quick changes that have come with its development, a translated version of the statement warns, noting that the technologies have the ability to quickly spread information and can mobilize citizens. Accusing current practices of having low effectiveness, the statement goes on to say that how China provides public opinion guidance and controls the spread of information online is already a real and prominent problem.
