Abstract

First, this article mainly focuses on the spiral of silence theory, which means that we try to roughly and shortly conclude the background, key concepts, and the relationship between concepts of the theory, but the impact and evaluation about the theory won’t be discussed. Second, by reviewing the development of the theory, this article classifies the previous conclusion into five aspects, empirical verification research, theoretical extension research, development of variables (concepts), the effect of the spiral process, and some latest researches under an online context. Finally, we use the original theory and new findings based on the literature to analyze the process of the spiral of silence in the public opinion of Chongqing Wanzhou Bus Case on Sina Weibo.
