WeChat in Russia was banned is true, But for Tencent this may not be a big problem.
This time banned enlightenment is not a WeChat, there are synchronization Line, BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) and other communications software, and the reasons for the closure Although there are reports that because "It is not registered in the relevant departments"Is a violation of Article 18.4 of the Russian Network Regulation Ordinance:
Any communication product information must be registered in the Russian Network Communications and Mass Media Authority.
But in most of the screenshots of the Republic of the website description is because they "do not have the relevant provisions of the submission of user information."
However, the reason for the real ban is not important, because this blockade is not the first time, it will not be the last time.
Russia's "mass media regulation"
It was established in 2008, as of the end of 2016, "record" is blocked more than 50,000 sites, of which more than 30,000 involving gambling, suicide, narcotics, child pornography and other illegal content sites, of which more well-known Wikipedia and GitHub - the former because of the involved in drug synthesis steps, while the latter is because someone shared the "suicide document."
But in contrast to this sector in recent years, there is a more and more strong tendencies, such as the content service providers began to ask the local server and submit user information, which is WeChat this reason for the ban.
And WeChat was banned with Tencent, and not much impact.
No WeChat, think of the QQ
From the author to inquire about the information, the Chinese users in Russia is a natural transfer to the QQ.
Although it has begun to block WeChat, but this blockade is not an instant to achieve. Local users are gradually being disturbed, and in the rare connection time, the users have started to say please use QQ contact.
This is the author that the event Tencent little impact on one of the reasons, there are QQ Tencent ah.
And come back to look at the blockade event, the WeChat is also a good solution. As early as 2015 Google has also been a similar problem, and then Google will be part of the server into the Rostelecom data center, in order to achieve "compliance with the Internet company to Russian personal data stored in the territory of the" legal requirements.
So for the WeChat, as long as the subsequent establishment of several servers in Russia and open to Rostelecom just fine. Can it be used to solve the money?
As for the open data problem ... ... this is nothing to discuss the necessary, right?
One more thing ...
Micro letter in the Russian blockade is a small thing, but its follow-up development is more worthy of attention: If QQ is also closed it?
Imagine a group of children in Russia's parents, 7:30 after dinner suddenly found their children lost their ties ... ...
This is a big deal.
