As the Covid-19 pandemic is still rather complicated in Vietnam at the moment, many people choose a safe method to spend their Tet Holiday – staying at home. However, thanks to advanced technologies, their activities are not any less diverse and enjoyable.
The popularity of social networks to the community has both negative and positive impacts, especially during the social distance period when people have to use the Internet to update information around them. Using stricter policies and regulations, the Government is trying to minimize these drawbacks to provide a healthier virtual environment for its citizens.
According to Center for Tourism Information under the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, the two video clips titled “Viet Nam – Dat nuoc, con nguoi” (Vietnam – The Country and People) and “Viet Nam – Diem den Van hoa va Am thuc” (Vietnam – Destination of Culture and Cuisine Destination) got over one million viewers on its Youtube channel after a short time of uploading.
The Authority of Broadcasting and Electronic Information under the Ministry of Information and Communications has just required Google to remove clips with malicious contents and intensify filter and censorship to prevent such clips from appearing in Youtube.
