Chapter Ten Part Two: Countries That Block Facebook

Looking for a simple, stable and significant VPS as your web hosting? Check out DigitalOcean, only $5 per month, and you can get $10 in credit just for signing up now.

Does your country or area block Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and/or any other public websites as China?

You can figure it out by following the tips mentioned in Chapter Eight, and according to Wikipedia, there are 6 countries that block Facebook:

1. Bangladesh

2. China

3. Iran

4. Pakistan

5. Uzbekistan

6. Vietnam

Besides the above 6 countries, Syria is also mentioned, but according to Hillary Clinton's speech at George Washington University on February 15, 2011, Syria just unblocked Facebook a few days ago, so Wikipedia is a little out the date.

As a user in China, it's painful to play with Facebook since you have to use some VPN services or other anti-censorship tools to get access to the website, which will take much more time than usual. Even though, I keep login with Facebook often if not everyday, since the internet freedom is so amazing, the friends are so kind.

Hope the countries that block Facebook will be less and less until zero in the near future, such as 2012, the best time I think. :-)
