  1. I’m curious, do some people have both a renren.com account as well as a Facebook account? If so, is it a similar social environment where you post the same things to both renren.com and Facebook?

    • This is a very good question. Due to the internet censorship by the Chinese government, people in China don’t have direct access to Facebook, Youtube and etc. So these social media platforms are pure subsitutes created to meet the needs of the Chinese society.
