I am privileged to have the opportunity to travel to Korea and China as the chaperone for a school trip. While I knew that some websites would be blocked, I was surprised by the transparency with which censorship is practiced in China. I have to wonder how long websites such as You Tube, Twitter, and Facebook will continue to be blocked. People are clearly aware of the existence of social media websites. The Freedom of Information Act can be touted as a reason for the importance of permitting an unrestricted exchange of information. What surprises me is the failure of the Chinese government to see the potential marketing avenues that exist through the use of social media.
