Easiest and the Most-Secure Way to Access Facebook in China

If you have ever been to China, you must be knowing that the censorship policy of Chinese Government is unethically strict and unreasonable. Our dearest websites like Twitter, YouTube, StumbleUpon, Gmail, and above all Facebook are banned in China. You will be surprised to know that even the photos on Flickr and Wikipedia are blocked, however the text on these two websites can be viewed.

To add to your excitement, I would like to inform you that every personal blog hosted by Blogger, Wordpress, Tumbler and other blogging hosts is banned in China.

Before I joined Facebook and Twitter, I believed them to be sheer waste of time; however the story is different afterwards. At the moment I believe that I can live without food, water and shelter for 14 days but I cannot live without Facebook for 24 hours. I am sure that your story will be no different than mine.

During last month, I had to visit China to attend a workshop on Information Technology for a few days. At this point, I came to know that You cannot access Facebook, Youtube , Twitter and Gmail in China; thus I started looking for the viable solution. I wanted to get a solution which is feasible both in quality and financially.

I found quite a number of solutions including web based proxy sites, free proxy sites and Virtual Private Network (VPN) software and studied them thoroughly. During my stay in China, I tried all of these methods and found that it is best to use a VPN to access Facebook in China.
A VPN is a magnificent way for bypassing internet censorship imposed by China to curtail the freedom of speech by its citizens. By using a VPN, you can very conveniently unblock all websites without paying a gigantic sum of money. It is not only cost-effective but also very efficient. VPNs are extremely safe and secure. If installed correctly, a VPN can be your most-secure way to access facebook and other blocked websites from China.

Unlike other solutions, VPNs are very fast and instantly unblock all the blocked websites. Although you can buy a subscription from a paid VPN service but you can also find free VPNs easily by searching on the internet. Most of the paid VPNs even offer a 7-day free trial to its customers.

I think that such an irrational internet censorship policy in China is unfair to these mammoth websites especially Facebook. Facebook has more than 500 Million active users and more than 250 million users access it every day. Just imagine the impact of this website on people’s lives that users install more than 20 Million applications every day.

Does the Government in China still think that they will be able to block the access of its population to Facebook? What do you think?

You can read more on the subject by visiting a friend’s blog at “Access Facebook in China”. This blog is regularly updated and contains the latest information to access Facebook from China and anywhere else in the World.

How to Watch Hulu in the UK or Canada?

With the advent of exceptionally interesting and fascinating TV shows, American television has attracted the attention of billions of viewers around the globe. TV series like Prison Break, CSI: Miami, Lost, Friends and Desperate Housewives are tremendously popular in all parts of the World, where English is spoken or even understood.

Although Hulu is restricted to be viewed by American viewers only, it still plays a vital role for the audience from other countries to watch the latest episodes. You watch Hulu in the UK or any other country. All you need to do is to change your IP address to a US IP and you are all set to watch Hulu. How to get an American IP remains the question, but it is not as difficult as it seems to be.

The easiest way to change your IP address is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which is a one of the most secure ways to connect to a private LAN using internet to transport the network data packets securely. VPN uses encryption and authentication to deny unauthorized access and it can be utilized to send and receive any kind of data including video, audio and data. You can watch Hulu in the UK or Canada using a VPN easily.

Hotspot Shield had been a popular service to watch Hulu in Canada a couple of years ago, but because of its immense popularity and non-secure nature, it was blocked. Security has never been an issue with the VPN users, because of its capability to bypass regional internet restrictions like firewalls and web filters. Such bypasses are attributed to “Tunneling” the link of the network through a different area.

While accessing a VPN to watch Hulu in Canada, you should not be worried about anything, because VPNs are secure, reliable and legal. Above all, you can use a VPN to view Hulu from a range of diverse devices like xBox, laptop, iPhone, PS3 and iPad.

One of the great reasons to watch Hulu in the UK using a VPN is because every time you will access Hulu, it will be from a different IP address and Hulu will not mark you as an unauthorized user. Instead it will consider you as one of its legal and paid subscriber.

In order to install a VPN, you need not to be a computer guru. They are easy to install and simple to handle. Even a 6-years old kid can install them. Its installation is very simple and can be completed conveniently within a few minutes. After installation is completed, you can surf as you do on your internet. There is even no need to type the URLs.

VPNs have definitely changed the way users watch Hulu in Canada, UK or any country other than USA. Many of the US TV series are more popular outside USA than inside it. The immense attractiveness of these programs has forced the viewers to use secure, reliable and undetectable ways to watch Hulu for free.

Have you ever used Hulu.com to watch American TV series outside USA? If yes, then which service you have used? You can share your experiences for the benefit of all of us.
