I'm in China for a couple of weeks and want to check FB, which is blocked. Can anyone tell me how to get around it? I googled it but solutions are banned too. I'm on OSX by the way. Thanksssss.

Send a letter to a friend at home asking to check it for you. Make sure you don't move for about two weeks so you are sure to receive the letter back.

Try a proxy website like vtunnel.com or fojax.com?

I would rather be tortured than be without Facebook, which is the worst torture there is.


Nawwww, but still...

You could buy some sort of quiz book full of inane trivia, and sit in your room skimming it for non-existent references to yourself, while trying to convince yourself you're being social.

That was what it was like when I used Facebook, anyway.

I was in China for a month earlier this year and I can tell you, there's no way around it. Also, you can't search for Tian'anmen Square Massacre on Wikipedia but you can get the article on Chairman Mao.

Hey, that's where I am right now. Checking out the World Expo. Shanghai is so awesome at night.

I'm gonna try this out right now. I was trying the proxies but there's a problem with loading on Facebook security.

I just got here today. It didn't work though. I got stuck on the registration when it asked me to select a plan, yet there was no plan... awesome.

Because a while ago, an ethnic minority started rioting and the government didn't want to deal with people bitching about it on Facebook or MySpace or YouTube.

It's not like he wants to sit in his hotel room all day browsing Facebook. He's just trying to get a simple convenience. Sure, he could do without it, but we can do without a lot of things. If he asked for help getting a bag of Reeses Pieces, you wouldn't say "come on, you're in China, why waste all your time eating candy".

I don't see why wanting to spend like 5 minutes catching up and socializing with friends is such a terrible thing.

I went to China a few months back for a study trip and I befriended a few Chinese people. There is a way to bypass the block. My Chinese friends gave me a software...I forgot what it's called but I could access Facebook and stuff through it. You should ask the locals there for help. They'd know what to do.

Probably too late for this, but I guess you could ask a friend you trust to do it. Set your e-mail preferences to send you updates about everything. That would drive me nuts, but you'll get all the info you could need. Also you might try using one of those apps that updates to a bunch of different social networks, though it may be any connection to the site that gets blocked through China's servers. SHEdit: And use the text messaging setup to update your own status/comment on others.

Oh communist nations, I completely understand why so many people think communism is such a good thing, it's totally better than capitalism .

Sorry, that was completely off topic, TS, DO NOT try to access Facebook in China, either they will imprison you, or execute you, they take this shit seriously, and they don't care if your from another nation. They kill there own citizens if they are caught with the bible, I mean, really, is it worth your life just to check your precious Facebook. It's a stupid ****ing web site.
