Internet blamed for teenage pregnancies in Shanghai

Teenage pregnancy is becoming a problem in the coastal cities, as apparantly is internet dating.

It’s actually a serious issue as the anti-pornography side to Chinese internet censorship is a far more important side to the “Great Firewall of China” than many in the West credit.  This could be uncontrollable internally, although a lot of “web 2.0” applications may suffer in the meantime as the Chinese government sees a non-political reason to crack down on social media.

Chinese internet censorship is far more a case of fears about social stability than it is about guilt over student protests.
