Using social media in China?

Using social media

It's not only social media platforms that are blocked but a majority of Western apps with social elements (WhatsApp is blocked too).

Easiest way to get around the Great Firewall of China is to purchase a reliable VPN. I'd recommend ExpressVPN or Astrill, as those are the most popular options among expats in China. Reply to this

You can use Chinese social media like WeChat which is the most used social media, just like WhatsApp. Reply to this
