China's Government Employs 2 Million 'Public Opinion Analysts'

While Internet snooping in the U.S. may be a newly revealed phenomenon, China has long known that the government monitors the online behavior of the nation’s millions of Internet users. According to a report by the Beijing News, China is currently employing roughly two million people to monitor public opinion on social media.

These Chinese government employees, who work at a variety of levels and sectors, are paid to look through personal blogs, social media posts and discussion boards, and discern the public’s concerns. These “Internet opinion analysts” use the information not only to keep a watchful eye on regular citizens but also as a form of checks and balances on government figures. According to the South China Morning Post, Internet monitors also use their research on social media to verify accusations and claims of corruption on a local level. They also are responsible for making these reports known to local-level government members on a daily basis, either through texting or written reports.

The identities of these government workers are often concealed; protecting their anonymity is crucial in order to receive unfiltered information on the web. The Beijing News, however, was able to meet some Internet-watchers at a conference held by the Communist Party newspaper, the People’s Daily’s Online Public Opinion Monitoring Center.

The think-tank-like center was established in 2008 as a way for China’s government to help manage the country's ever-growing Internet conversation, which has become increasingly difficult to wrangle. In the event of high-profile crimes, accidents, or natural disasters, reports by analysts are used by government officials to help release public statements that aim to placate online anger.

The daily life of an analyst relies a lot on search-engine optimized research. The Beijing News spoke to a man named Yuan Ming, whose name was changed for the article, and reported that his job was to search his district’s name on both Google and China’s international search engine Baidu, and run it through special software that alerts offices when certain phrases involving their district become trending topics on the web.

This newly-revealed tactic is a step up from the nation’s propaganda department’s older strategies. The Communist Party has also previously employed professional contractors who are paid to write positive posts, or begin positive conversation to counteract negative information on the web. These people, called ‘wumao,’ often also resort to smearing the reputations of those who are critical of the government, or digitally harassing them.

Remember when "RESISTANCE IS FUTILE" and "Old China" cyber-stalked "TrevorSwitchew" and threatened him and his family after they ID'd him by searching the net for his personal information?

All because he dared to post his sympathy for the poor Tibetans living under brutal CCP occupation?

TYPICAL Wumao attack.

DO NOT reveal personal info when engaged in ANY CCP China discussions.

Here, lying CCP losers, the Chinese Communist Party STATE MEDIA has confessed to this massive deceit of the Chinese people!

China employs two million microblog monitors state media say

More than two million people in China are employed by the government to monitor web activity, state media say, providing a rare glimpse into how the state tries to control the internet.

The Beijing News says the monitors, described as internet opinion analysts, are on state and commercial payrolls.

China's hundreds of millions of web users increasingly use microblogs to criticise the state or vent anger.

Recent research suggested Chinese censors actively target social media.

The report by the Beijing News said that these monitors were not required to delete postings.

China's internet is one of the most controlled and censored in the world.

Websites deemed to be subversive are blocked. Politically sensitive postings are routinely deleted . Even the name of the former Prime Minister Wen Jiabao was censored when rumours were circulating on the internet that his family had amassed a fortune while he was in power.

But with the rapid growth of internet users, the ruling Communist Party has found itself fighting an uphill battle.

The Beijing News, while reporting the story of microblog monitors, has admitted that it is impossible for the government to delete all "undesirable" postings.

The more postings deleted, the more they appear, it says.

China seldom reveals details about how it monitors and controls the internet. The government even does not acknowledge that it blocks web sites.

But the report does offer a rare glimpse into this opaque world.
They are "strictly to gather and analyse public opinions on microblog sites and compile reports for decision-makers", it said. It also added details about how some of these monitors work.

Tang Xiaotao has been working as a monitor for less than six months, the report says, without revealing where he works.

"He sits in front of a PC every day, and opening up an application, he types in key words which are specified by clients.

"He then monitors negative opinions related to the clients, and gathers (them) and compile reports and send them to the clients," it says.

The reports says the software used in the office is even more advanced and supported by thousands of servers. It also monitors websites outside China.

China rarely reveals any details concerning the scale and sophistication of its internet police force.

It is believed that the two million internet monitors are part of a huge army which the government relies on to control the internet.

The government is also to organise training classes for them for the first time from 14 to 18 October, the paper says.

But it is not clear whether the training will be for existing monitors or for new recruits.

The training will have eight modules, and teach participants how to analyse and judge online postings and deal with crisis situations, it says.

The most popular microblogging site Sina Weibo, launched in 2010, now has more than 500 million registered users with 100 million messages posted daily.

Topics cover a wide range - from personal hobbies, health to celebrity gossip and food safety but they also include politically sensitive issues like official corruption.

Postings deemed to be politically incorrect are routinely deleted.

What an UNBELIEVABLE WASTE OF MONEY!

But, the CCP is so weak and hated by its own people, it MUST HIRE liars and censors!

LOTS and LOTS of them!

In Canada, the CCP had to THREATEN AND PAY CHINESE STUDENTS in Canada to show up to "greet" Hu Jin Tao when he visited, because otherwise only angry protesting Chinese-Canadians would be there!

The CCP is a JOKE!
