Beijing, Nov.17 (People's Daily Online) --China's Internet users are questioning the integrity of the verification system for job titles on microblogs, such as Sina Weibo, given the fact that one can simply go online and buy a verified job title.

Currently, if you open a microblog page, you will find that there is a letter "V" or a check mark behind the usernames of many social celebrities and organizations, and below the "V" or check mark, the social status of the user is usually written.

On the current microblog, the various registration statuses, such as "senior network worker," "chief advisor," "authoritative expert," "senior manager" and "co-founder" always confuse people, and it is hard to tell whether they are true.

Although it seems that all the influential microblog platforms have clear and transparent registration procedures, many netizens still quite doubt their verification mechanisms.

Recently, a search of the key words "microblog and V certification" on and still found information on more than 70 relevant products. After communicating with different sellers, the reporter found that it coats between 700 and 800 yuan to buy a registration name with a "V."
