新浪微博将于下月禁止14岁以下网民注册账号 _双语新闻

Chinese netizens under the age of 14 will no longer be allowed to register a micro-blogging account on Sina Weibo, beginning next month, the service provider said on Tuesday.

新浪微博官方于周二表示,从下个月开始,14岁以下的中国网民将不允许注册新浪微博账号。

The move is to protect the cybersecurity of youngsters and to help build a clean, healthy, civilized and organized online environment in the future, according to a statement issued by the platform’s operator on its official micro blog.

平台运营商在其官方微博上发表声明称,此举是为了保护青少年的网络安全,并在未来能为他们建立一个干净、健康、文明有组织的网络环境。

But the operator said it is trying to design and develop a special version of the Weibo platform for younger users in line with laws and regulations as soon as possible to ensure that minors are protected more effectively.

运营商还表示希望能根据法律法规尽快为年轻用户设计开发一个特殊版本的微博,以确保未成年人得到更有效的保护。

“We’ve always paid high attention to protecting the young people, and we never stop our steps to create a better online space for them,” it said. “We welcome all users to supervise us and work together with us to make the platform safer and cleaner.”

声明中说道:“我们一直高度重视对年轻人的保护,从未停止过努力为他们创造一个更好的网络空间。我们欢迎所有用户来监督、合作,共同打造一个更安全、更干净的微博平台。”

Sina Weibo opened to the public in late 2009. By September last year, it had 376 million users per month actively using the service, such as reading information, sharing online posts and making comments, up 27 percent year-on-year, according to a report the platform’s data center released at the end of 2017.

新浪微博于2009年末与公众见面。据该平台数据中心2017年底发布的一份报告显示,截至去年9月,该平台每月活跃用户达3.76亿人,同比去年增长27%,用户可在平台上阅读信息、分享帖子、评论等。

Among these active users, about 16 percent were under the age of 18, it said, adding more than 56 percent were men.

报告称,在这些活跃用户中,约有16%的人年龄在18岁以下,超过56%的人是男性。

In addition to writing and forwarding information, uploading videos and music, sharing live streaming also has been popular on the platform, it added.

除了编写和转发信息,上传视频和音乐、分享流媒体直播在平台上也很受欢迎。
