Introducing Trending News on Chinese Social Media, a new feature in The Current Digest of the Chinese Press.
What do China’s regular folks think and talk about? A new feature in The Current Digest of the Chinese Press, called “Trending News on Chinese Social Media,” looks beyond the official state-controlled news outlets to explore relevant stories largely unnoticed by Western readers. Topics generating millions of views on platforms like WeChat, Weibo, Zhihu, Baidu Tieba (Post Bar) and TikTok in China range from health and safety to food, entertainment, culture and more.
This feature provides a different angle than official media and will be a valuable resource to scholars and researchers who are interested in Chinese social studies, political studies, new media, and culture related studies.
