Vietnam Facebook Ban...

Have been in Vietnam for 10 days and understand they have an "unofficial ban" on Facebook. I know there are ways around this, but I am not a technical person. However, I spent one night at a hotel in HCMC where it worked. Do I assume the hotel owner bypassed the block with his WiFi network . If that is possible, does anyone know of hotels in Hoi An, Hue, or Hanoi where this would be the case? If so, you could private message me to avoid implicating the places in question.

although fb is banned in Vn but it doesn't matter, every one can use it. I think use hotpot shield is good way but all the computers in hotels already install to use fb

We were in Hue & Hoi An for 2 weeks in August this year and used wi-fi everyday in hotels, guest houses, resturants to access facebook to post pics back to family and never had any problems at all.

If you use an Android device you won't have an issue with FB. (We didn't anyway).

Apple is a problem.

I used to experience the FB ban when I first came here one year ago but it has since gone away after Tet. I don't have to use alternative methods any more. If you have any problem, one thing will surely work, use your smartphone to connect. Somehow mobile sites have never been banned.
