BEIJING, July 21 (TMTPOST)— In order to address problems such as spreading child soft-core pornography and sexually suggestive online marketing that using such soft porn content, China’s regulator recently summoned leaders of Tencent’s QQ, Alibaba’s Taobao, TikTok’s Chinese rival Kuaishou, Twitter-like social media Sina Weibo, social media and e-commerce startup Xiaohongshu and other online platform operators, the Cyberspace Administration (CAC) said on Wednesday. CAC revealed the platforms were asked to carry out rectification, remove illegal online contents and delete illegal social media accounts completely. Regulators also imposed penalties on these platforms. The move is part of a recent campaign to protect minors during this summer vacation, targeting online contents that encourage pornography, violence, extravagance, cyberbullying and other risks of minors’ physical and mental health. The campaign also cracks down on“chaos” of online fun culture such as inducing minors to contribute money to their idols.
