We are literally just a few weeks into 2019 and already some major problems appear to be coming up for the tech giant Microsoft. As per some credible sources, the company’s search engine Bing has been blocked in China entirely, even after Microsoft adopted the country’s somewhat sketchy demand of censoring controversial search results having the potential of damaging China’s reputation in any possible manner.
According to the Financial Times, this decision of completely banning Bing from the country was taken on the decrees of the Chinese Government. Although, it still hasn’t been confirmed on what grounds such a ban was imposed, however, it is being speculated that the chief reason was most probably censorship issues.
Lately, Microsoft issued an official statement to Gizmodo clearly stating that it has confirmed: “Bing is currently inaccessible in China and [is] engaged to determine next steps.” Notably, many social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter among various others have already been booted out of China. As tracked by the Financial Times, Microsoft’s Bing was, in fact, the only search engine being used in the country that did not have a Chinese origin.
