In most areas of China and Vietnam, it is not possible to access Facebook. Facebook in China is blocked because of the country’s policy of Internet censorship. But, there are still many people who are able to access Facebook in these countries. If you live in China, you know how hard it is to keep in touch with friends and family. Facebook is blocked, Gmail is only accessible sometimes, and Skype is soon to be blacklisted. But, it is possible to access Facebook and all the other major websites which are blocked! A proxy server for Facebook in China is the best means of accessing Facebook.
But, does a proxy server for Facebook in China work?
When I went to China for a visit last year, I found out that most of the major social networking sites had been blocked. I was so upset because I could not access my account and I could not even send my friends messages and tell them how my trip was going. Making your friends jealous of your trip is the best part of going abroad!
Then one day, I received a call from one of my friends who lives in Saudi Arabia. Internet censorship issues are also common in Saudi Arabia and while we were discussing on this topic he told me that there are some websites in his country which are inaccessible, but with a proxy server, he is able to access those websites. I asked him if proxy servers can be used to unblock Facebook and he replied that it is possible.
How does a proxy server for Facebook in China work?
A proxy server sits between you and Facebook, and is located somewhere outside of China – usually in The US, The UK, or Europe. Because Facebook is accessed a lot all over the world, when you connect to the proxy server (not to Facebook), you’ll probably see a cached, or stored version of Facebook as provided by the proxy server. If you use the proxy server to access a site that is less frequently accessed, the proxy server can make a new request for you, it just might take a few seconds longer than getting something cached.
After that I started my search for the best proxy server for Facebook in China and I came across a proxy site called SecuriTales. This proxy server for Facebook in China does not require any installation. This meant that I could use the proxy server on any computer I wanted to without being detected. With this proxy server for Facebook in China, I was not only able to unblock Facebook, but a number of other major sites which had been blocked in China. And yes, I was able to stream video from YouTube and other video streaming sites like Vimeo.
SecuriTales was the only reliable proxy server for Facebook in China that I was able to find. Most other links were dead, or slow and timed out. They are a premium service, which means that they charge a monthly fee, but $6 a month or $36 RMB is great, especially considering you can also get a 25% discount for taking advantage of their FREE trial. Weird huh? For trying them out for FREE, they give you a 25% discount.
