Abstract: Rich-club is a closely connected sub-community in networks. To test its influence on the information flow, we study competing mechanisms of the information flow on the biggest microblog in China—Sina Weibo. The results demonstrate that: first, there is relatively strong rich-club effect in both influential users and random sampled users; second, social selection, geographic proximity, and social influence have significant influence on the information flow within the rich-club for different social groups, and the impact of social influence is overwhelmingly strong. The theoretical generalizations help us understand the hierarchical rich-club effect in information diffusion.

Abstract: Numerous studies of digital populism in China focus on activism that discloses wrongdoings and defends social justice. However, few have addressed the extent to which digital populism fosters official stances and leads to collective action. This paper fills this gap in scholarship and investigates the alliance between “young patriotic netizens” (aiguo xiaofenhong) and official organizations across social media platforms, as well as the concomitant perils. Drawing on discourse analysis and online ethnographic work, this paper examines the case of Leon Dai, a Taiwanese actor whose role in Zhao Wei’s film No Other Love was replaced because of his alleged pro-Taiwan independence stance. After Leon Dai issued an apology on Sina Weibo on July 15, 2016, the “First Annual Apologies to China Contest” was launched on Facebook. The contest attracted many participants to post satiric comments about the Chinese government and its citizens, but mainland patriots soon joined the fray. By analyzing the multifarious ways in which “young patriotic netizens” interact with official media, elite intellectuals, celebrities, and commercial websites, this paper argues that the Leon Dai incident signifies official media’s adoption of a more proactive role in stimulating public sentiments and initiating online mobilization. Moreover, an examination of internet memes deriving from the Leon Dai incident sheds light on understanding the many parallels of digital populism among internet users across the Taiwan Strait and beyond.

Abstract: One HPV vaccine was approved this July in China, which caused wide discussion on social media Weibo. A content analysis was conducted on 382 posts to learn both the media discourse and public’s reactions on this vaccine. The posts were analyzed with respect to message source, tone, format, number of reposts, and information specific to HPV vaccine. Correlations between those variables were also examined. The results showed a neutral or positive tone toward HPV vaccine in general. Statistics was the most often used format. Comprehensive information on HPV vaccine and cervical cancer were presented by most of the messages (60%). However, the accuracy and effectiveness were lacking in half of the messages. The average numbers of reposts were 1083 and 8580 for individual and organizational sources. Higher numbers of reposts were associated with neutral tone, statistics format and complete and accurate descriptions for individual sources but not for organizational sources.
