When China was a small nation, it was known as a land of miracles.
The country’s first president, Mao Zedong, had been a scientist, and the nation had an innovative agricultural system that had brought millions to prosperity.
But by the 1970s, China had come to resemble the rest of the world in terms of political corruption, the environment and public opinion, as well as its own growing social problems.
And those problems were on the rise.
According to the China Democracy Institute, China has the third-highest level of corruption in the world, after India and Russia.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the countrys largest political party, with an estimated 2.2 million members, but it has a history of suppressing dissent and stifling the free expression of its members.
In the late 1990s, Beijing started a campaign to clamp down on social media, which it saw as a way to control the news.
In 2002, a report by the Chinese Communist party concluded that more than half of China’s citizens had never heard of the Internet.
This year, the CCP announced it would limit the use of social media to 1,000 characters per person.
The government has also banned the production and sale of “informational materials” and banned foreign companies from operating in the country.
But even after the ban, many Chinese remain wary of the country’s growing Internet presence.
The CCP has even threatened to shut down Facebook, which was founded in 2004.
With the government cracking down on the internet and its own public censoring of social-media users, many have become increasingly wary of China.
This fear has been particularly prevalent among younger generations, who are often not politically active and often live with relatives abroad.
While social media is often viewed as a tool of the CCP, some Chinese are increasingly turning to alternative means of communicating.
One of the first new forms of social networking emerged in 2012 when Sina, the largest Chinese e-commerce company, was launched in China.
It was a response to a crackdown by the government on Internet users, who were accused of spreading “disinformation.”
But Sina quickly became the country s first and most popular social network for young people.
The rise of social networks has been driven by the rise of China as a center of information production and consumption, with over 1 billion people using the internet each day, according to data from the University of California, Berkeley.
In an effort to combat corruption, in 2013 the government introduced a new anti-graft law.
The law makes it illegal to commit a crime by knowingly or recklessly accepting bribes.
It also criminalizes using social media platforms to promote a business.
The law has not gone into effect yet.
In recent years, Chinahas seen an explosion in social-networking sites, including Sina Weibo, the social-news site that was the subject of a 2011 report by U.S. government agencies.
The site is home to over 100 million users, according an estimate from China’s internet regulator.
