It is nearly impossible now for the 2 companies to recover their lost ground in China.

They have already paid a hefty price for their prior refusal to comply to the rules.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Making sure that nothing undermines your authority and status is not really "moral" or "responsibili ...

Management manages by making decisions and by seeing that those decisions are implemented.

Many Chinese argue that foreign companies like these two cannot even serve Chinese market, because they lack knowlege of local aspects - so not only they would have to abide by China's laws, but they would also have to start from scratch it developing understanding of the Chinese market and the habits of their prospective users. I don't agree with that, but that's what many Chinese claim.

From this perspective, I would argue that if Google or Facebook were accessible from China, it would not be so much about serving the Chinese market for China, but to open Chinese eyes to the outside world and what there is to see. After all, to continue from the forementioned argument, they should be much better at understanding that world than any Chinese company. And of course it would offer an outlet for Chinese users to input to that outside world.

So I would say that there IS (or would be) a niche for foreign social media in China, even if it would already be fully saturated by Chinese companies serving the Chinese audience from Chinese perspective.

If they would grab that niche, there is a chance that they would then grow naturally from that and start to compete with Chinese companies in more mainstream Chinese market.

I haven't lived in China even half a decade, but I have acquired enough first-hand experience that China's real problem is to get decisions that really matter implemented. They spend lot of resources on things like blocking Google or Facebook, and less on things that people really need - like providing services to rural citizens or making the business environment simpler and smoother.
