Facebook in China Soon?

Facebook's 26-year-old Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is visiting China and trying to friend the Chinese authorities. Does this mean Facebook will be back in China soon so I can friend my friends in China? Probably not. As the article points out, it would be hard for Facebook to operate in China the same way it operates in the U.S., politically and culturally. But the visit is certainly a good thing. Once he sees the market potential of China with his own eyes, who is to say that the young and ambitious Zuckerberg won't be able to find a way to enter the market. Zuckerberg's visit coincides with the third round of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue. Whether the conversation is about social networking, floating the Chinese currency, or improving human rights records, I am glad that the U.S. and China are having these conversations.
