Q: Can Facebook be accessed in China?

I have heard that the Chinese Govt is thinking about relaxing their stranglehold on internet censorship, and opening up sites such as Facebook and Youtube in the very near future. Can anyone confirm these rumours??

Hey Ludovico

I dont know where you have that information from, but it is definetely not my impression that the government is relaxing the control on the net. Actually it is my impression that they are turning the screws on the net recently. I think this has something to do with the upcoming 90 years anniversary of the party.

Normally when china is nearing big days like the 60 years or 90 years anniversaries the control get stronger.

I can confirm that it's a rumor. Oh. That wasn't what you asked. Well, who knows what the government is thinking about doing? Today, FB is blocked, as is YouTube and Twitter and who knows what else. Google VPN and move on.

Even Gmail in Shanghai works wired let alone opening up sites like Facebook!

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
