You can get FB in China all the time by using a VPN. Service is spotty though, and often after 10-15 minutes, you must reconnect via the VPN. I actually found it more reliable to use a VPN with my phone + 4G service than to use my laptop. Chinese people know how to get FB, using a VPN, but most are simply not interested for the same reasons we do not use Weibo (their friends are on Weibo + it is in Chinese). I tried Weibo and WeChat Apps while I was there and found WeChat to be superior to FB messenger. So there is no real reason for a Chinese person to want to use FB.

ook, CNN,...most foreigners living in China -- plus many Chinese people -- use secure VPNs to surf the web to bypass the censorship barriers. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and even The Epoch Times are all easily accessible from within mainland China. You said only a "select few" can access Facebook??? Get your facts straight!
