Chinese ‘netizens’ inundate Obama’s Google+ page

President Obama’s page on Google’s social network site has been inundated with messages in Chinese after restrictions in China were removed. Every current topic on Mr Obama’s Google+ page attracted hundreds of Chinese comments. Some contributors made jokes; others said they were occupying the site in the style of western Occupy campaigns. Google+ is normally blocked in China along with other social media that the authorities deem unacceptable. But on 20 February 2012 internet-users in many parts of China found they could gain access to the site – prompting some to suggest occupying it, in a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Occupy Wall Street campaign.
