Ok, ignorant here. (Yea, no wise cracks). I have a friend in China teaching English, she has been there five years now and we communicate on FaceBook all the time.
So what does this mean? FaceBook going to China?

Suppose you live in China, and some Facebook friend of yours evolves into a political dissadent or becomes a Christian. Soon, the secret police show up at your door, and you disappear.
