Lack of Diversity Influenced Development of Internet

“white, young, and thin”. In the network world of East Asia, the East Asian aesthetic standard of “white, young and thin” becomes popular (iMedia, 2022). On the internet, almost only this type of girl can be seen and everyone praises their appearance and figure. And plump girls will receive negative comments. This situation affects the aesthetics of contemporary network users and makes their aesthetics lack diversity. So you can’t appreciate others, such as healthy yellow skin and muscular thighs.

The lack of diversity is also reflected in the language. Worldwide, ten languages account for 90 percent of the top 10 million websites on the Internet(TIMESOFINDIA.COM, 2018). It is even more unfortunate that today, when the Internet is so widespread, a large proportion of the world’s population still has no access to it because of language limitations. The Internet is supposed to be inclusive and diverse, so enriching the language of the Internet can help build a better Internet environment and will play an important role in the development of the Internet.
