China Presses Its Internet Censorship Efforts Across the Globe

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/02/technology/china-technology-censorship-borders-expansion.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

        For years, China has exerted digital control with a system of
        internet filters known as the Great Firewall, which allows
        authorities to limit what people see online. To broaden its
        censorship efforts, Beijing is venturing outside the Great
        Firewall and paying more attention to what its citizens are
        saying on non-Chinese apps and services.  As part of that
        shift, Beijing has at times pressured foreign companies like
        Google and Facebook, which are both blocked in China, to take
        down certain content. At other times, it has bypassed foreign
        companies entirely and instead directly pushed users of global
        social media to encourage self-censorship.
