For the longest time, to access Facebook, just changing my dns to use either google or opendns worked for me. However that trick doesn’t work anymore because all the IP Addresses that facebook.com normally resolves to have been blocked by the ISPs in Vietnam. I had resorted to using sshuttle – which creates a tunnel between my laptop and my server in the US. It worked, but it was slow. However yesterday one of my friends gave me a list of IP Addresses for Facebook which haven’t been blocked yet. These can be added to your
hosts file and you should be able to access Facebook again!

If you’re on Linux, add the above entries to
/etc/hosts. For Windows, I think the path is =>
c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. This Wikipedia Article should help in case you need to figure out where your hosts file is.
Hope this helps.
