Google+ Banned in China
By on June 30th, 2011

Google-PlusIt’s been barely two days since Google Plus was unveiled, but China has already decided that it has seen and heard enough. Even before most Chinese people have had the chance to get their hands on a Google+ invite, the Chinese Government has banned the Google’s new social network.

Google’s troubles with the Chinese Government are well known and documented. Last year, Google pulled out of China, after a very public war of words with the government. Google alleged that elements with the probable backing of the government had hacked into its services to access data belonging to human rights activists. It’s not clear exactly which aspect of Google Plus aggravated the Chinese, but both Great Firewall of China and Just Ping are confirming that Google Plus is inaccessible inside China.

Google Plus is a new social network that was recently unveiled, and has since been dubbed as a potential “Facebook Killer” by pundits. It attempts to offer the best blend of openness and privacy through its strong focus on Circles (groups). If you have just received an invite, don’t forget to check out our Google+ setup guide. If you are still waiting for an invite, take a look at our screenshot tour. Due to excessive demand, Google has stopped handing out any more invites, but you can drop your mail in the queue to be notified as and when more invites become available.

    WAKE-UP Guys…

    These Chinese F**K*RS STILL ALIVE DUE TO US.
    DUE TO CHEAP LABOUR RATES, MANY COMPANIES ESTABLISHED THEIR MANUFACTURING UNITS IN CHINA & STRENGTHEN CHINESE ECONOMY.

    NOW THESE CHINESE F*C*E*RS THINKING THAT WHOLE WORLD IS DEPEND UPON THEM & THEY CAN VIRTUALLY RULING THE WORLD.

    ALMOST ALL BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS(ANTHRAX, BIRD FLU..etc..) ARE ORIGINATED FROM CHINA ITSELF.

    JUST RECENT EXAMPLE WAS PAKISTAN OBTAINED “POLIO DISEASE VIRUS” FROM CHINA & TRYING TO SPREAD THAT ACROSS THE BORDER OF INDIA(For more info, google it).

    NEVER BUY CHINESE PRODUCTS, MOST OF THEM ARE LOW QUALITY & LOW GRADE ONES. THEY USE LOW GRADELY RECYCLED PLASTIC & METALS WHICH CONTAINS MOST DANGEROUS TOXIC ELEMENTS.

    COMMUNISTS ARE REAL VIRUS FOR WORLD.

    JUST THINK ABOUT IT….
