Chinese ‘netizens’ inundate Obama’s Google+ page

by BBC

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.
