Nikhil Sonnad published an article on QZ.com that China will now demand users give their real identity while commenting anywhere online.
Certain services and websites have already had to require real identities from users, but now it seems it will be ubiquitous.
From the article:
“For users who have not given identifying information, platforms for and providers of online communities may not allow posting of any kind,” the announcement declares. It adds that, on these platforms, “no content may appear that is prohibited by national regulations.” (Those are my translations; I tried to keep intact the confusing language often used in these Chinese government announcements.) The CAC announcement also requires these platforms to “investigate thoroughly” any users they think may be using fake names and retain all user data for government inspection.
