I don’t count how many times I check on my Facebook account every day. But being in South Korea, it plays an important role in my efforts to stay in touch with my friends and family in the United States.
Facebook and other social networking sites have also been playing an important role in Vietnam lately. When the government began to arrest and harass online journalists and bloggers, many of them moved their work to these sites.
Now, however, Vietnam is blocking access to Facebook. You can see my post about it on the Society of Professional Journalists’ blog network.
