Reddit banned from China
Reddit has been blocked in all areas of China. China adds Reddit to the ongoing list of block sites - including Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - as part of what is called the "Golden Shield Project." The country says the blocks are an effort to keep the country safe, free of 'dangerous' content. The blocked sites are typically sites that the Chinese government fear are used to communicate about topics the country doesn't want discussed, or to share content the government feels is obscene.
