The censorship of the post by the Chinese Government was a major setback to the freedom of expression of the people. They cannot say anything against the product, company or a person whom they feel troubled with. This was a massive blow as the people cannot express their views and reviews with respect to a specific product. They no longer had the right to post about the corruptions on the online media. This was another impact of the observation related to Chinese government with respect to New Age media.
Not only this, it also had adverse impacts (Shirk, 2010). The people, in order to post comments, begun to use malicious and anonymous accounts, thus this gave the rise to the greater number of unfounded rumors in the nation.
This is also leading to the curbing of the ability of the people to express their views and opinions. They cannot say anything about a product and can’t give their views on common equipment, product or people.
Another effect of the same is the increase in the number of unethical hacking. Due to the new age media, the unethical hacking is increasing largely in China. The companies who delete the post enter the profile of the person without his own permission and will, thereby giving rise to hacking.
The deletion of the posts is indirectly a loss to the Chinese economies. Due to this, the people cannot bring up their complaints considering which the companies can look for improvements. But due to deletion of the posts, they continue with the same kind of products which deprives the innovations (Zhang, E., & Fleming, 2005).
Because, of the deletion of the posts, the people cannot express their views in public. They cannot discuss about a bad product openly, thus the other people would never be aware about these things.
