Blogs in Thailand and Malaysia: Contrasting Contexts, Contrasting Contents

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In Southeast Asia, freedom of information policy-making faces an interesting but potentially contradictory set of circumstances. On the one hand, countries of the region have a long tradition of tightly controlled information policies, with most governments not only regulating but actively censoring media content. On the other hand, the countries of Southeast Asia have recently struggled to maintain control over citizen journalists who operate on the World Wide Web. Thailand has actively suppressed Internet Websites such as YouTube while Malaysia has an open Internet policy forced on it by virtue of its massive Multimedia Super Corridor. This paper examines the popular blogsites of two countries that have quite different political and historical settings. We look at the range of contents presented by blogs in Thailand and Malaysia, examining their presentational styles, and the frames employed to present information to their readers. We compare the differences in blogging in the two countries, and finally we analyze how these contents differ from and sometimes challenge mainstream media.
