The Chinese government has launched a national-level platform to alert the public about online rumours and counter slander in Beijing.

The platform hosted by the Internet Illegal Information Reporting Center under the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission and operated by xinhuanet.com, which operates under the guidance of 27 units, such as the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, and the National Development and Reform Commission.

It allows the public to quickly discover and refute rumours floating around online, while at the same time throwing light on pseudoscientific theories.

The platform has, so far, integrated more than 40 rumour-refuting platforms into the national one.

Cutting-edge technology is also utilised to improve performance at tackling online rumors.

While the internet has become a vital source for the public to acquire daily information and express opinions, a number of problems including spreading rumours and illegal information, continue to exist and disturb social order.
