Facebook Blocked in China

This doesn’t bode well for 08.08.08 and beyond: just a few weeks after launching its service in China, Facebook has been blocked.

As of 4:26pm EST, are any NowPublic members in China able to access it?

Danwei readers in Beijing reported earlier today that Facebook seemed to be blocked. It was accessible in Shanghai this afternoon, but now seems to be blocked nationwide.

There’s more about this in a post by Sky Canaves on the Wall Street Journal blog.
