Zuckerberg taunted over FB China access after posting Tiananmen jogging pic

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was taunted by netizens after posting a picture on the social media site of him running through Tiananmen Square in Beijing on Friday morning.

Many were curious as to how Zuckerberg bypassed the country’s online censorship, as Facebook is generally inaccessible in China without the use of a virtual private network (VPN). Scholarism convenor and student activist Joshua Wong shared the post on his Facebook page asking, “How [did you] update your Facebook in China, Mark?”

Civic Passion leader Wong Yeung-tat commented similarly asking, “How did you get [past] the ‘Great Firewall’?”
