There is an excellent service I have used lately to access Facebook in China. You can find it at www.securitales.com and I warmly recommend it. Let me tell you more about it and how I got to use it.
A lot has already been written about the connection problems Internet users are facing in China. Having most of the free world internet blocked is quite frustrating especially for Facebook addicts. So what can you do? In one word, the answer is web Proxy.
A proxy is a server that allows internet users to use it as a bridge, to connect from China to Facebook or from one place to the other and override obstacles that prevent the regular way of connection. This means that if your mom does not allow you to talk to your best friend because she thinks he is a bad influence, you can pass messages to that friend through another guy that lives next door and ask him to pass the message and send you the response.
Back to the Internet world, a Facebook proxy server is a server that allows you to access Facebook in China although Facebook is blocked through the great firewall, by sending all the messages to Facebook through that server and getting all the responses from Facebook as if you were connected directly.
There are thousands of sites that claim they can help you access Facebook in China, for free and all they do is make you click on more and more ads, getting you nowhere. I have tried it myself and I got nowhere, until I found www.securitales.com
The thing that made me trust Securitales from the first minute is that they did not ask me for my details or anything else on their free trial. All they said was try our server for a few minutes before you signup and make sure we can solve your problem and let you get to Facebook in China before you signup. I really like this approach and I think every service provider should do that.
Then, when I decided to sign up, I saw that they have a 30 day money back guarantee policy. This means that they are not afraid that you will leave, probably because they know that people will be happy with their service. I wonder if the fact that I’m in China now changes anything in their math.
Just before I signed up, I looked at their contact details. Those guys have an office in Delaware, USA. It is not just a website that belongs to nobody.
The last thing that made me trust them is their payment options. If they offer Paypal, Credit Card, Pay by phone and wire transfer, it means that they are serious guys. If they weren’t serious, no bank would have allowed them to do wire transfer.
I think that anyone who signs up with a company that offers a free trial and a money back guarantee should feel OK with these guys. All I wanted to do was to access Facebook in China. And it works awesome.
