Social media platform, Pintrest has been banned in China

China's Firewall is cracking down on Pinterest, the social media platform popular for letting users share, or pin, items of interest to a virtual board. For years, Pinterest has been freely accessible in China, because its users typically don't share content that would rattle Chinese censors.
People mostly use the site to pin images and tips on home decor, hair styles, cooking, wedding planning and fashion.

However, according to watchdog group Greatfire.org, which monitors censorship and accessibility of websites in China, the Pinterest block started earlier this month.

The timing coincided with China's annual National People's Congress, a sensitive time in Beijing when China's top leadership and thousands of delegates gather to set the country's political and economic course for the year.

Pinterest's ban fits a pattern of China blocking sites that compete with emerging local rivals

AGRIC BUSINESS ALERT:
Lowest Investment (100k)
HOW IT WORKS:
For example You invest 100k (initial investment capital) on PRODUCE "Corn" for a period of 1 year on a CONTRACT BASIS!
After every 3months in the year,You're paid N30k as profit!
At the end of the year,profit paid amounts to (30k X 3months)= N90k + 100k (your initial investment capital) which sums to a total of N190k!
The higher the amount on investment,the higher the profit!

It is because they have a chinese option so they don't want it competing with their own.

If US used to ban like this,no national from another country will ever make it there.

Whoever calls China world power is retarded. This country is so petty and does not have what it takes to be world power. They will not hesitate to cripple a country economically just to prove a point that they are stronger.

They won'tlet taiwan be independent in peace, because they feel she was part of China DECADES ago. Refer to taiwan as independent and that is the end of your trade deal with China.

Even south Korea is not left out. They constantly attempt to bully her because of her smaller size by banning SK's movies,serials and music at the slightest stupid provication..it's not SK's fault if you can't grow your movies and music to be good as hers. US will never stoop so low..Yet the american way of doing things is dominant in the world. That's what being a world power is all about.
