The Power of Social Network in China: How Does Microblog Influence the Way of Expression
Unformatted Document Text:  The Power of Social Network in China: How Does Microblog Influence the Way of Expression censored the ability of traditional media; they set agenda for public opinions and adjusted policies by experiences. All the subjects were controlled by the government. The only way that people attempted to sway government decisions and policies was through gaining meetings with the authorities by letters, phone calls and visits, requiring high investments of time and energy with mostly unsatisfying results. While governments guided traditional media to report certain news stories, the function of supervision by traditional media to the government was not effective. Traditionally, the government has also taken extremely long times to solve problems and make decisions. As soon as new media came out, the solid boundaries keeping the public separate for the government began to dissolve. The power of government to manage and control public opinion has being weakened. Microblogging provides multiple ways to collect information and disseminate to wide range of people. It gives previously unknown events continuous exposure to the public, gathering the close attention of citizens. People are no longer choosing to meet high authorities through letters, phone calls and visits. New media, especially microblogging, creates ways for citizens to communicate with governments directly and shortens the time for solving problems and adjusting policies. On the other hand, traditional media are looking for sources and topics from microblogs. Browsing microblog becomes the everyday habit of many journalists. And they always follow the hot topics initiated from microblogs, choosing which stories to focus on and do more in-depth coverage. New media has thus become the main tool in this age; It connects with every subject in the chain of citizens to governments; It has changed the attitudes and decision making methods of both citizens and governments.
