This week's chat

March 5, 2012 Commschat on China and Google +

For tonight’s #CommsChat we’re delighted to have Thomas Morffew joining us. Thomas is the director of Ren Media, which specialises in consulting on China and social media issues, and he also runs The g+ resource, a Google+ resources project.

In this week’s chat, we want to look at how social networks, and in particular Google+, are operating in China and the differences from operations in Europe and America.

We’ll also be looking at how Google+ has progressed from its big launch and how successful it’s currently proving.

Topics for tonight:

– Is Google+ a genuine competitor among social networks?
– What are users, both in the UK and further afield, using Google+ for?
– What does the recent incident with Chinese “netizens” flooding Barack Obama’s Google+ page tell us about the current state of social media in China?
– Do social networks such as Google+ mean an “all-or-nothing” approach to online censorship?
– What are the key differences when it comes to social networks between China and the West?

Use the #commschat tag to take part – we’ll see you at 8pm (UK time). A transcript will go up tomorrow morning.
