Facebook Allegedly Considering Entering China

Facebook has not yet confirmed the rumour

It has been reported by The New York Times that Facebook has attempted to access the highly censored Chinese online market. Currently, the site cannot be accessed by Chinese consumers, but some employees of the company have been quoted as saying that Facebook is working to accommodate the country's censorship demands. The social network has not been legally available in the country since 2009 but is accessed by some Chinese users using specially designed software. Anonymous employees, who helped with the report, also claimed that Mark Zuckerberg said of the project that Facebook was “enabling conversation, even if it's not yet the full conversation”. The social network has refused to either confirm or deny either claim, but Zuckerberg has recently been seen in the company of China's President Xi Jinping.
