After continuous testing today, it seems that for the time being, China has banned the word “Facebook” from Google search. Search for “Google”, “Gmail”, and even “access blocked sites” were all able to be searched and sites were able to be accessed. However, anything containing the word “Facebook” got your search automatically timed out, and banned from Google search, even after cookie removal and DNS flush. Is this a temporary thing or is China pimping up it’s Firewall yet again?
I was able to use Yahoo and Bing to search the terms, but a couple searches in a row also got me banned from these search engines. Again, the “no no” word was “Facebook”
Only time will tell
