More Chinese circumvent governent censors to access Facebook and Twitter – Hindustan Times

According to a new study by market research firm GlobalWebIndex on Chinese Internet usage over the past month, 25 percent of Chinese Internet users said they used Google+ while 15 percent accessed Facebook. Eight percent of the respondents also surfed Twitter.

The report added that in 2012, some 35 million Chinese netizens used Twitter, up from 11.8 million in 2009. Also, 65.2 million Chinese users said they visited Facebook in 2012, up from 7.9 million in 2009.

One of the reasons for this increase in Chinese netizens surfing banned sites such as Facebook is that the Chinese are using virtual private networks (VPNs), virtual cloud networks (VCNs), or internationally routed connections, to circumvent the government censors, GlobalWebIndex founder Tom Smith told the news website, “In short, the ‘Great Firewall’ is not as solid as many people think.”
