How to access facebook & youtube in China...?
As many riots such as the recent Xianjiang one, China blocked most of the photo & video web sites, which included the previous blocked youtube, do you guys have any idea how to bypass the proxy?
Many of my friends recommend me to do a google search on "unblock facenook" & "unblock youtube", but many of these sites will just give me a picture of a snap shot of the screen, many features aren't even clickable. I need a fully access to the facebook & youtube but not just a snap shot. Anyone can help m on that? Thanks!
There are other companies as well, but I think they're pretty competitively priced.
This kind of solution makes the most sense for the OP. Jiwire used to offer a VPN product for around $40 / year but I can't find it anymore. The problem with any commercial VPN solution meant for individual users is that they represent a high-value target for government officials who want to block your connection. So tomorrow, they could say "all traffic to those VPN servers is blocked." and then you're out of luck.
I was hoping your company was based outside of China so that you could VPN back to the corporate servers. I would imagine that Fortune 500 users who can establish a full VPN tunnel can access Facebook when traveling to China.

Unless the company blocks social networking and other sites on their corporate servers, as many F500/1000 companies do. OP mentions that his company blocks internet mail, so I would have to assume they also block social networks (except maybe business-related sites like LinkedIn).
We have had the same problem here in Shanghai. The best way to unblock facebook we have found, (and it actually works!) is to subscribe to a VPN service provider. The one we use does not advertise that it unblocks facebook, but is more geared to providing access to UK Media such as BBC iPlayer. It was lack of facebook that prompted us to search, but we wish we had known about VPN's sooner. Subscription is only £5.00 per month at my-expat-network.
I am in China for another 10 days ago and as I noticed China blocks major video streaming websites including Youtube. I tried a service that I found on Google and even though it works it is slow and practically useless for streaming video from sites.
Can anyone recommend an inexpensive service that is fast and works well with video streaming websites? I do not need a long term, just a short term subscription.
