Yang Lan, China’s Oprah, makes a compelling case for the rise of the social media class in China. She says that the Chinese social media environment is a study in media freedom and cultural pressure, where young Chinese are constantly seeking new self-expression in a global media climate and representing something authentically Chinese to the world.

This is not the most thorough talk on China’s cultural and social issues. But watch it if you want some idea of the force multiplier of young people using and sharing freely available media.
