Homework Help Apps Are Much Sought-After In China As Summer Break Starts
A flock of homework help apps have surfaced in China in recent years. Demand for such apps surges as summer vacation starts, for teachers and peer-help are absent during the break. Among the 20 students who got interviewed by a Chinese newspaper at a local library in Hebei Province, 7 out of 20 students have used homework help apps; 9 never used one but knew about them; only 4 have never heard of these apps. Operating on the same simple goal to help students finish their assignments, these homework helpers come in slight variations. For example, Zuoye Shenqi is a search engine for problem sets. Its location-based interface lets students see what keywords others nearby are searching.1 Others, like Wenzuoye, Wenta and Zuoyebang, let users snap and post a photo of their problem, doing away the hassle of typing it out. Some also have a social platform for students to share thoughts and photos. Wenta even sells virtual products and lets contributors earn virtual points.

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?
