    china~managed cyberspace has almost 700m~ 800m active netizens ,which is almost equal to the combined of the rest countries. QQ has 700m active users ,which can match facebook. alibaba'sale is larger than the combined of ebay and amazon. the NO. of Weibo's users can match twitter too. huawei is asskicking cisco.

    There is a point in this even if they do so much copy-paste.

    As India is becoming IT Giant and almost all softwares in the world have significant Indian hand, we need to take it further and start making Indian based systems and also stop felling on the "foreign made" stuff.

    That's true. There are things which we need to learn from China especially when it comes to Internet Data Security.

    In fact, GOI needs to introduce India specific social networking sites wherein Govt will have control over the user data.

    Now a days, the US based social networking sites have become a threat to national security and our govt cannot control them completely.

    Not just social networking sites but email systems as well.

    As a small example Russians also have their own mail and FB type stuff which is heavily used by Russians.

    And not to forget mobile based messaging systems such as Whatsapp, viber etc...

    Especially, Whatsapp has evolved into a dangerous app with which an anti-social guy can start riots by spreading rumors.

    China requires her own internet and social network.

    How else can it undertake mind control and censorship?

    Except maybe WeChat, nobody gives a poppycock about Chinese internet outside China. Not even in places like Taiwan, Malaysia, and Singapore.

    However when looking into top shareholders behind u find most of these Chinese brands being held by foreign investors (South African, Japanese PE and Arab prince etc.), listed in Nasdaq, or based offshore in Virgin Islands alike.

    Indians perhaps mostly of a techie type, but not so much enthusiastic abt creating a "network" or "hardware" enterprise of their own. Having an FB or TW account may give'em a feel of riding on the "mainstream" or merging into the "world".

    As for tremendous commercial value or cyber security involved, it's hardly of any layman's concern.
