You can't unless you have a VPN. The great firewall blocks all things facebook, twitter and youtube.

Great Firewall (Internet censorship system of Chinese gov) use DNS hijacking, IP blocking and keyword IDS (Intrusion Detect System) to prevent you accessing facebook, twitter, youtube and more.

1. DNS hijacking : the DNS nameserver controlled by Chinese gov will give you an incorrect IP of one website, and with DNS cache it will poison all the internet.
2. IP blocking : some server IP (twitter for example) are totally blocked, there is no way but to use proxy to access to it.
3. keyword IDS : This is the most advanced part of GFW which is developed by Cisco, In the blacklist there are many sensitive keywords, if one some sensitive keywords are detected, the TCP/IP connection will be reset by GFW, and your brower will give you "The connection was reset" message.

You can use free proxy such as tor, freegate, wu jie to unblock facebook.

Also, you can use VPN to establish encrypted connection to unblock these sites, and prevent the censors from watching you.
You don't have to install any software on your system by using PPTP VPN which is supported by Windows/Mac/iphone/android, and you can get it from: http://www.gfwvpn.com

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
