Are you having trouble getting into facebook at school, work or the library. This article explains in depth how to unblock facebook on many different security platforms. There are many reasons why someone would block facebook and there are many reasons why someone would want to get around these settings.
When you trying to access facebook, you go to the site and for some reason it might say “Address Not Found. Firefox can’t find the server.” or something similar. This usually means that your network has blocked facebook. This article will teach you how to unblock it and be able to use facebook at school and other places.
Why do libraries or businesses block sites like Facebook?
Managers feel that surfing social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook in the office makes employees far less productive. Schools may block access to those sites for the same reasons, with teachers feeling that students may not be paying attention in class or that they are viewing non educational sites. Both schools and companies also want to protect their computers from viruses or spyware that can downloaded from sites.
How do you unblock Facebook?
There are many ways to access a blocked website and to get access to Facebook at your school or work.
The easiest is to use a free or paid proxy website
A web proxy server acts as middle-man between your computer and the facebook server (or any server that you are using the proxy for). You can pay for a proxy but that will cost $10 to $100 a month. Way to expensive when there are freely available proxy servers.
You can gain control of a remote computer that has access to the website.
The best ways to do this are ssh, telnet or a GUI remote access program. If you have a compter at home you can install Radmin 3 or other remote access software on it. You’ll also have to install it on the school or office computer. Most companies, schools and libraies wont let you install a program, so this is usually out of the question. But if you can, this is a great way to unblock facebook.
You can use your cell phone’s internet to access the internet
This is called tethering and only works if your phone provider allows you to tether your cell phone. Many cell phone providers offer a data plan for your service plan. It is no longer that expense to get an unlimited data plan. Then you can use your phone’s modem to access to the internet. If you have a data plan you can just access facebook from your phone, but many times you want to use it on a bigger monitor. That’s where tethering comes in.
How do you tether your phone?
You can search for an article on google, but here is the basically lowdown for it:
First you install the modem. Go to the manufacturers website and find out how to install it for that specific phone. Then you activate the modem. You can find the information in the user manual. Connect the phone to the computer with a usb cord. It should then say “hardware found.” Locate the drivers and you’re all set.
Now go to the network interface in the control panel and click “set up a connection or network.” Choose dial up. Then set it up, which takes two seconds. Now facebook should be unblocked. You should be able to access the site like normal.
