Fun-driven Internet in China may become powerful political tool – Middle East Times

From AFP, via Middle East Times:

“The Internet is supposed to be the information highway but according to our survey, for many Internet users in China, it is an entertainment highway,” said Professor Guo Liang of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences of Beijing.

“Mainland Chinese use the Internet more for entertainment and chatting than for seeking information or news or for working or studying,” he said, releasing the survey findings at a briefing at Brookings Institution in Washington.
