This chart shows how divided tech workers are over Google's reported new Chinese search engine
Eight years after Google pulled its search engine from China due to concerns over censorship and cyber attacks, the company is considering relaunching a censored search function there - and members of the broader tech community aren't happy about it.
But they're outnumbered by Google employees. As this chart from Statista shows, 65% of the 472 polled are in favor of the company's reversed position.There's a clear division of opinions amongst tech workers as China's existing human rights issues leave some skeptical that Google's accommodation of Chinese censorship rules is a good idea.
