While watching videos on Douyin one day, I came across a very unique profile(轮廓): an 88-year-old farmer livestreaming trendy products in a rural setting. I clicked his page and saw that he was livestreaming because he needed to cover his wife's medical expenses. Curious, I decided to contact him and learn more about his story.

Now a retired farmer, Wu relies on government subsidies(补贴). One rainy day, he returned to his rundown one-floor cottage in the suburb of Henan province and found his wife lying on the ground in great pain. She had broken her leg and lost the ability to walk.

A great burden befell this already poverty-stricken family. The medical expenses for Wu's wife are about 800 yuan per month. Her daughter, a mother of three and a housewife, has no means of supporting Wu financially. As a heavy user on Douyin, Wu's daughter thought that perhaps they too could try livestreaming as a way to help their family. With a 9.9 yuan phone holder, they began livestreaming on Douyin, and Wu became one of the oldest livestreamers on the platform.

Every day, Wu livestreams for a total of six hours, separated into morning and afternoon sessions. With a broad smile and soothing(宽慰的)voice, he explains the products on his table, which range from water bottles, makeup removers and vegetables to traditional Chinese clothing that Wu himself wears in front of the camera. Thousands of viewers are drawn in by his moving story and amiable(和蔼的)personality. They refer to him dearly as "my uncle Wu" or "Laoxiang".

During my interview with him, Wu would laugh warmly. His strong Henan dialect was sometimes hard to understand, but his tone was full of comfort and optimism. "I enjoy livestreaming. One day, one of the viewers came to visit me. I was so happy." Wu spoke about the friendships he made after becoming a livestreamer, and his voice was so contagious(感染力的)that it put a smile on my face.

He also does not avoid showing affection for his wife: "I will buy her good food when I have the money." I am moved by his ability to see the optimistic side of life despite being struck by hardships and his resilience(坚韧)sailing through the low tides of life.

On March 14, Bai Xuesong, a guide at the Beilin Museum in Xi’an, northwest China’s Shaanxi province, hosted a live broadcast displaying the collections at the museum, which attracted over 300,000 viewers.

Bai has become a hit on the Internet ever since he started giving tours of the museum collections through live streaming videos on February 23. After viewing his broadcasts, many netizens expressed a desire to visit the museum when it reopened after the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is estimated that more than 30 museums in China, including the National Museum of China and the Dunhuang Academy China, have hosted live broadcasts on online platforms during the epidemic (流行病), each gaining over 10 million viewers in one day. The Gansu Provincial Museum, one of the museums that have been exploring online platforms and using them, attracted as many as 900,000 viewers at one point in its live broadcasts, more than half of its total viewers last year, according to the deputy curator (副馆长) of the museum. As a result, the number of fans of the official online store of the museum on the e-commerce platform Taobao has grown to 25,000, with sales of related products seeing a huge increase.

“Cooperation between museums and Internet platforms is beneficial to both sides,” said Huang Yang, vice professor with the cultural heritage and museology (博物馆学) department of the Nanjing Normal University. He said that while museums need to use live broadcasts to spread culture, Internet giants need the resources that museums possess to provide high-quality content for users.

D.Working together can create a win-win situation.

Australian experts have expressed concerns that too many millennials (千禧一代) are hoping to use their social media accounts to build their careers.

Their concerns follow the sudden rise in “insta-celebrities” who make money by posting sponsored (赞助的) photos online. For the lucky few who are not only talented photographers but also good-looking and business-savvy (有商业头脑的), making money off social media isn’t impossible.

Instagram is flooded with social media professionals paid to promote products and services.However, social scientist Lauren Rosewarne, from the University of Melbourne, says that in reality, there are far fewer people making money off the platforms than one may think.

She said many young Australians were getting sucked in by the appeal of making money on platforms like Instagram, describing it as “totally unrealistic “and extremely difficult to do.” Young people are hoping to be famous in numbers that were simply not there 20 years ago, Rosewarne told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Saturday. “There are some people who can make fortunes out of monetizing (使具有货币性质) their Instagram posts, but that is not the norm.”

She said it was up to parents and schools to discourage students from seeking Insta-fame, as many believe it is a possible career choice. “There’s the warning for parents; this is not a normal or even common occurrence that you can monetize your Instagram account.”

Meanwhile Toni Eager from Australian National University said social problems could arise from spending too much time with social media.

“Where do the insta-celebrities go ... to separate the life people see on Instagram from their actual normal life?” Eager said. “All of a sudden, people own your private life.”

9.Why is there a rise in “insta-celebrities”?

A.Many young people want to be photographers.

B.Many people see it as a shortcut to making money.

C.People want to socialize by sharing photos online.

D.Instagram offers a reliable career choice.

10.What does the underlined phrase “getting sucked in” in paragraph 4 probably mean?

A.Benefiting from something.

B.Becoming involved in something.

C.Taking advantage of something.

D.Being satisfied with something.

11.What message does the author convey by quoting Lauren Rosewarne?

A.Young people today are more business-savvy than-ever.

B.Young people are becoming less interested in internet fame.

C.Instagram is not a good platform to promote new products.

D.It’s a bad idea for young people to try earning money on Instagram.

12.What problem does Toni Eager think overuse of social media could cause?

A.An over-reliance on Instagram.

B.A loss of personal privacy.

C.Inability to appreciate life.

D.The desire to monetize one’s Instagram account.
