Zuckerberg is struggling to crack China

Foreign Policy magazine (FP) last week reported that Mark Zuckerberg has failed in his most recent attempt to get facebook into China.

Zuckerberg has been courting Chinese officials to promote facebook’s new geographic filtering mechanism that allows governments to manipulate the information available to their citizens.

FP reports that the Chinese government is more concerned about positioning Chinese software such as WeChat in the global market. We Chat currently has two thirds of a billion users. Facebook has over one and a half billion.
