Technologies, Websites Banned In China

A Look at All the Technologies and Websites Banned in China


Looking at China from a tech perspective is always a fascinating endeavor. The country is more populous than any other place on the planet, and yet, the country’s citizens are often blocked from partaking in the latest tech advancements, all in the name of state wanting to control the dissemination of information.
All the while, the powers that be in China talk a big game about being more open but as a recent CNN look into the country reveals, there’s still a big lockdown on which pieces of software and websites individuals in the country are allowed to use. And further illustrating the degree to which the Chinese Government looks to control access to any and all types of content, Lady Gaga media content in any form was recently banned after the singer took a meeting with the Dalai Lama in the United States.
