China apparently has a cyber wall since 1997. Who knew? Its role in internet censorship in China is to block access to selected foreign websites and to slow down cross-border internet traffic. The effect includes: limiting access to foreign information sources, blocking foreign internet tools (e.g.google search, facebook, twitter, Wikipedia and others) and mobile apps, and requiring foreign companies to adapt to domestic regulations. It also nurtures domestic companies. The great firewall was formerly operated by the SIIO since 2013 it was officially operated by the Cyberspace administration of china. Its job is to translate the Communist party of chinas will into technical specifications. The SARs* are not affected. The SARs are Hong Kong and Macau because they have their own governmental and legal systems. The word was firstly used by Geremie Barmé an Australien writer who officially wasn’t famous but many people think of him as famous.
Tell me in comments below what you think of the great firewall
