Recently many Facebook fan page owners have reported that they were contacted by people seemingly connected to China offering to purchase their fan page. Often these fan pages are pro TI, but in many cases they were apolitical, many are Anime related, with a younger target audience.
Depending on the popularity of the page, owners are offered from upwards to NTD 1,000,000 to at least NTD 5,000. Sources point out that this has been going on since 2016, but this year brings a new level of intensity.
The KMT legislators are busy redirecting blame to the DPP, claiming that it’s the DPP buying these fan pages in attempt to drum up fear for China before the election.
