SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China’s cyberspace regulator has sent a team to the offices of social media company Douban to make changes after it found “serious network chaos” on the company’s platform, the regulator said on Tuesday .

The comment came in a brief statement on the Cyberspace Administration of China’s official WeChat account.

As Beijing ramps up efforts to “clean up” the Internet space, the regulator fined Douban 1.5 million yuan ($235,000) in December for unlawfully leaking information.

Douban is an interest-based networking site in China that allows users to form online communities and review films, books and music.
