According to a new study, the government of China cranks out around 488 million fake social media posts every year. The study says that this is being done to divert people’s attention from sensitive issues. Many foreign websites are blocked in China. Moreover, authorities also censor activity on domestic social media sites. The study was carried out by Gary King, Harvard University data scientist.
