Facebook is still in the look to enter the Chinese market. However, the future does not look promising. The Chinese government still perceives Facebook as a threat to the country and sponsor of terrorism. In addition to the government, prospective users are not interested in using Facebook. Facebook is an alien tool for Chinese internet users and there are existing domestic social media companies that are strengthening the entry barriers. The recent acquisition of Whatsapp seemed to be an alternative to enter the market and establish a strong presence in China. However, according to a recent article in Forbes, the acquisition of Whatsapp will not secure a way into the Chinese market. Even though the government did not block Whatsapp, it is completely overlooked by other Chinese companies that offer a similar or even better service. Moreover, the Chinese government has an obvious favoritism towards Chinese companies such as WeChat. The success of WeChat implies more jobs and a contribution to the Chinese economy. Needless to say the government has tracking power over Chinese companies, whereas foreign businesses like Whatsapp have complete privacy policies that obstruct the government’s ability to interfere with the clients’ privacy.
