Facebook Should Be In China, Says Baidu [blogs.forbes.com]
"...a Facebook entry into China would be fraught with challenges but personally I believe that having Facebook in China, even if it were compelled to abide by China's strict censorship requirements, would still be better than not having it here. I believe that it would be a net positive for China's Internet users. More connectivity is better than less. I felt the same way when Google entered China and acquiesced to the demands of censors: Even though they were censored, they nevertheless helped to expand the information horizons of Chinese Internet users, and I'm very thankful that some compromise was arrived at.

'm not so sure, it is not for us to tell other countries and cultures what to do, or for us to impose our way of life on other people.
how many millions of man hours are wasted on facebook every week? why would anyone wish that onto another country.
