How to Access Blocked Facebook in Vietnam


17 April 2011 updated! These days, the famous social networks like Facebook or Twitter have been blocked by ISPs in many Asian countries (including Vietnam and China). In a previous article, I presented several ways To Access Blocked Facebook. These tips helped us a lot, but there are some problems we still have to face, such as some tips are quite complex whereas some are not so efficient (in speed and other functionality). Since Feb 2010, local authority keeps forcing ISP to update their new methods for blocking social networks. Today I have a good news for Facebook users in Vietnam.
