As the Internet gradually becomes an indispensable part of people's lives, more and more minors are going online at an early age.
According to a newly released report on the Chinese minors' use of Internet over the past year, about 98.1 percent of minors can fully get access to the Internet. Nearly 72 percent minors under the age of 10 have already been able to get access to the Internet, a 55.9-percent increase compared with the percentage in 2010.
More than 90 percent of minors have been exposed to inappropriate content online, mainly through commercials, videos and games, according to the People's Daily citing another report.
In 2011, Weibo started to ask new users to register accounts with their real names, and demanded all of its users to verify their accounts with real names last September.
Last month, Weibo also released a new policy to control verbal harassment on its platform. Users will be banned from leaving comments for three days after their comments are deleted or their accounts are blacklisted by another user who has over 100,000 followers.
Sina Weibo, one of China's most popular social media platforms, was publicly launched in 2009. By June, it had over 431 million active users per month, 93 percent of who used mobile devices to access the platform.
