Air pollution policy making and social media in Beijing, 2011-2013
This article is by Johan van de Ven, whose undergraduate dissertation at Oxford University examined the effects of factors such as environmental movements, diplomacy and social media on air pollution policy-making in China. In a study conducted from June to December 2013, I quantitatively and qualitatively examined a variety of social media and mainstream media articles related to air pollution  and compared the results with government statements and policy making events, with the aim of answering the question: Was social media primarily responsible for government action on air pollution in China?

Ni Hao, Zuckerberg, in Chinese…
ChineseCharacters800 Here’s some “inspiration” to those in China still struggling with English: You don’t really have to learn English; Mark Zuckerberg’s ready to speak Chinese to those in the Middle Kingdom. True, the “shock effect” is there. To the Chinese, whether or not you’re “foreign” really depends on your looks, not your passport. So whilst I’m “Chinese” even with a Swiss passport, Zuckerberg would be considered by default to (still) be “foreign” even if, one day in the (remote) future, he gets naturalised as a PRC citizen (up to him if he wants to do that, though). Here’s why Mark Zuckerberg’s pulling off of a media conference all in Chinese was big news… Chinese is a terribly difficult language to learn to write. The number of different ideogrammes it has is in the five digits (and every time someone discovers a new chemical element, that’s an extra ideogramme added — no kidding!). Even though I’m personally against simplified Chinese, I still have to say it’s a kind of blessing for outsider...
