If Facebook wants China
That facebook is not in China shows that China can stay for as long as possible without letting the network. China, a super-fast high-flying economy has policies and arrangements that support home grown products.
A home to the world’s largest internet users, China blocked access to facebook in 2009 and the story that no facebook in China is till date. Towards long term expansion, it will benefit facebook to look at a Chinese arm.
FacebookChina, a fitting name can get the approval of Chinese regulators and rise fast in a short time. There are provisions Facebook can present to the Chinese Government to let this.
>FacebookChina will stand back from facebook.com and partner with local social networks. The partnership will see that only users that have accounts with other socials can login to use FacebookChina. This will affirm to Beijing that there is no data transfer and users that want to break Chinese laws can be tracked from those socials not FacebookChina
>FacebookChina will offer exciting services to the Chinese people deviating from Facebook services around the world. Contents to help users with informal education; digitized contents for Chinese Laws and History; promotion for articles, innovations and excellence within special groups; partnership with regional governments for information for their people, TV shows for past episodes, Sports highlights and more will hand users stuffs for their location, interests and options. These are services FacebookChina may offer.
These local services will be within Chinese laws and regulations, stuffs on FacebookChina will principally be user generated so FacebookChina is no search engine and basically Chinese. This offer is coming to China for the obvious and no fears that Others currently allowing the network will seek same or similar status.
Facebook needs China for expansion, for developers and for business; China ‘desires’ facebook and maybe looking to a pleasing approach. So facebook should study and learn about China faster as ‘willing’ China waits quietly.
