Taiwan would like to know, do you know?
[QQ] Direct flight across the Taiwan Strait was completely achieved in 2009. The exchange between Mainland China and Taiwan has entered a new stage. However, not everyone has the opportunity to go to Taiwan, unwilling to be left-out netizens come up with a new way to play. Recently an activity using photographs for cross-strait exchange spreads on the internet. Youth from both side of the strait are learning about each other through these images.
Mainland China’s “QQ alumni” and Taiwan’s “iPeen” has recently joined together to launch the activity called “Taiwan would like to know”. Netizens from Taiwan take pictures of the questions they have for netizens at Mainland China, and post them online. Netizens of Mainland China answer these questions using their photos. Questions involve in all aspects of lives of young people from two sides, such as “Who do you think is funnier, Jacky Wu (吴宗宪) or Xiaoshenyang (小沈阳)?” The questions show the cross-strait culture differences and also the fact that the netizens of Taiwan constantly pay close attention to the lives of fellow brothers and sisters at Mainland China.
Event responsible personal Mr. Zhang said during an interview: Due to majority of the Mainland netizens use QQ but Netizens of Taiwan mainly use MSN, cross-strait netizens do not have many chances to talk to each other. And learning about each other trough movies and television is also somewhat too passive, therefore we wanted to have this cross-strait exchange through the internet. To make the exchange even more interesting we came up with the idea of using photos for questions and answers.
This event started this month and will continue until the end of this year. It currently already attracted many young people from both sides of the strait participating with urgent desires to learn and to understand each other’s lives.
