The number of hornet users described in the media articles is quite inconsistent with the facts and data from the third party organizations.

The following is the full text of the statement:
Recently, a media account published an article saying that some comments and comments of the honeycomb travel network exist false content, and thus questioned the authenticity of the honeycomb travel network data and users. On October 21, 2018, Honeycomb Travel Network checked the data of travel notes, strategies, buzz (travel stories), questions and answers, and commentaries, and investigated the suspected false information.
Horse honeycomb is a tourism platform rather than a local life service website, the main carrier for users to share is travel notes, strategies and Q&A. Travels and strategies accounted for 78.91%, buzz (travel stories) for 7.92% and question and answer for 10.26% of the UGC content data. Behind these data are the real emotions and memories of users, and the real value of hornets' nest content.
The content of comments accounts for only 2.91% of the total data volume of the honeycomb, and the number of accounts suspected of false comments accounts for a small proportion of the total user, honeycomb has been cleared of these accounts. The number of hornet users described in the media articles is quite inconsistent with the facts and data from the third party organizations.
Before 2016, Ma Chao had encouraged users to make comments, and the data of commentaries increased rapidly. But with the omni-directional mobile Internetization and the growth of the number of users, the long content represented by travel notes and strategies, and the short content products represented by buzz (travel stories) and question-and-answer have become the focus of operation. They constitute the core competitiveness of the honeycomb together.
Honeycomb users record travel experience behavior, but also record local life services, people are more accustomed to travel after the completion of the review and sharing. Food and beverage reviews are not the core of honeycomb content, and some of the reviews come from travel notes, quiz and other content extraction, the above self-Media will honeycomb user content production active cycle, compared with local life services such as catering App, and interpreted as honeycomb staff organized plagiarism, there is a clear misleading tendency.
The honeycomb has been cracking down on illegal advertising in travel notes and question-and-answer, handling an average of 26,000 illegal advertising messages a week and closing 15,000 illegal accounts. Since the media attributed the illegal behavior of illegal businesses to Ma beehive, it is quite inconsistent with the facts.
Over the past decade, tens of millions of travelers have jointly made honeycombs - and we are honored to be here to record their travels, share their travels and see them as spiritual homes. These precious original content, is the foundation of the honeycomb's standing and business, but also our emotional connection with users.
Honeycomb will face up to the censorship loopholes in the operation and take positive improvement measures, but will not allow any individual or organization to call every enthusiastic and sincere Honeycomb user "zombie" and "water army", will be tens of millions of users to build a community together as a "ghost city" and attempt to destroy it. The honeycomb will take legal measures to safeguard its rights and interests in response to distorted statements in the article and verified organized attacks.
We are always in awe of the emotions brought about by each travel memory, and will continue to work to create a better tourism sharing environment.
