Facebook Use Drops in VN

by aengelson | March 15th, 2010

Facebook usership, not surprisingly, has declined in Vietnam since the government restricted access.

Over the weekend, someone tweeted me this analysis of Facebook use in Vietnam after the government block started. The Vietnamese government, which operates all internet carriers in the country, stopped allowing access to Facebook in late 2009 and early 2010. More here.

Some people are reportedly getting around the block, and it’s likely that  those users are not showing up in this data,  since, the way I understand it, their IP addresses no longer show a traceable location.

One other interesting statistic. In China, where FB is also blocked, there are fewer users than in the Republic of the Maldives.

Quotable

There is no thing that keeps its shape, for nature,
the innovator, would forever draw
forms out of other forms. In all this world
you can believe me no thing ever dies.
By birth we mean beginning to re-form,
a thing’s becoming other than it was;
and death is but the end of the old state;
one thing shifts here, another there; and yet
the total of all things is permanent.
— Ovid, The Metamorphoses (Book XV)
