People cannot always verify the correctness of information, although it often influence on the distribution of material goods and advancement in careers, etc.The article describes the experience of China Urban Gridding management’ creating and implementing. It is new technology for controlling residents in grids (territorial units) by collecting information about them on Internet platforms. Special centers were created in cities for this purpose. The system is undergoing experimental verification, although more than 50 cities in China are already participating in it. An analysis of the literature revealed two fundamentally different approaches to the new technology.
