Web News in China

In 1995, the first Internet media ‘Shen Zhou Xue Ren’ (神州学人) was established. Since then, web news has developed rapidly in China. Today, there are hundreds and thousands of online news sites all over mainland China. In the era of big data, network news broke through the traditional concept of dissemination of information so that people can get the most information quickly or even in real time. This paper will give an overview of web news in China including an illustration of the developmental history and current state, as well as the advantages and issues. The paper will also discuss the preservation of born-digital news and the administration of Internet news information services.
