The news are that Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is at Vietnam with his girlfriend to spend his holiday. Although the official Facebook sources say that he is there in his personal capacity, it is interesting that he chose Vietnam over all other destinations, a country where Facebook is facing many problems including blockage. So is this trip an attempt by him to set things right with Vietnamese government?

Facebook has been facing a kind of censorship at Vietnam. It is blocked in China and Vietnam has close ties with China which, some say, affects Vietnamese policies towards Facebook. Although Facebook is not exactly blocked in Vietnam, users sometimes are unable to access it. This, in turn, has affected Facebook users in Vietnam who have moved away from the social network and are adopting other local social networks such as Zing me.

Given the fact that Vietnam is one of the fastest growing markets, in terms of IT and electronics. And with a huge populace turning to social networks, every social network wants as much of it’s share as possible. Naturally, Facebook has pepped up efforts to improve relations with the Vietnam government so that the website could be conveniently accessed in the country.

This latest trip by Zuckerberg has been called a part of these efforts. Being there in person, Zuckerberg will have a lot more persuasive power with the Vietnam government that when doing it through any third-party. If indeed he can set things right with the local authorities, Facebook may mill another few million users from the country, a prize which Zuckerberg may definitely want to bag.

    Ruling political party in India is trying to ban facebook in india and Mark Zuckerberg has given up and bent down in front of indian political parties. He knows that he can’t afford to loose traffic from India. I’m sure in this case Mark Zuckerberg is not Ok at all.
