Weibo.com, a popular social media platform, has been fined for disseminating pornography as part of a nationwide crackdown, the antipornography authority said on April 14.
In February, the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications launched a new round of its national campaign against the production, sale and distribution of illegal publications and online erotic content that could affect juveniles.
Investigators found Weibo had started providing audio-visual programs in February 2015 without obtaining a license, and the content included obscene videos.
Weibo was fined 30,000 yuan ($4,359) and obscene content was taken off.
The national office has asked all online service providers to draw a lesson and tackle pornography by shutting down accounts with illegal content.
