Wall comes down briefly for Facebook users

China Daily Mail

Some mainland internet users were able to gain access to Facebook, the world’s largest online social network, for more than seven hours yesterday.

Having been blocked by the authorities for nearly three years, internet users in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and some cities in central China said they were able to visit the site from early morning to mid-afternoon, some through mobile internet connections.

It has since been blocked again.

“Is the wall down?” one microblogger asked on weibo, the mainland equivalent of Twitter, referring to the extensive online filtering system dubbed the “great firewall of China” (GFW) which the government uses to monitor and censor online information.

“This could be caused by an update to the GFW or an error in processing,” said Hong Bo , a Beijing-based IT commentator. “There’s a chance that some websites could have been released for a short time when the system was updating.”
