I just heard that Facebook in Vietnam has been officially unblocked (not that I think it was ever "officially blocked" and a work around was often possible). I'm not in Vietnam so can't personally verify this but a sudden flurry of activity on FB by my Vietnamese friends seem to confirm this.
Just need China to lift their block now. Hahaha
I am in Vietnam and Facebook is no problem. At first in Hanoi it didn't work but I asked the hotel guy who had a small 3 computer internet cafe downstairs and he went to the network settings, did something and now I have access anywhere.
My suggestion is ask any Vietnamese internet shop person and they'll likely easily help you.

Well it's available in Ha Tien on my computer,whereas it wasn't before.and I haven't changed any settings,so it looks like you're right,and it's now been unblocked.
After my DNS codes suddenly stopped working and amending the system code had no effect I tried ultrasurf. Got onto Facebook fine but it's screwed up all my browsing history and my Adobe Creative Suite now keeps asking me for the serial number. Had similar problems when I used to use Hotspot Shield. Just a warning! Anyway, I think the situation is that different ISPs have different levels of blockage or whatever it is (excuse my poor terminology) which would explain why some people can get on and I still can't!
Yes, It has been unblock. But I'm not sure when they are going to block it. So if you can't access facebook in Vietnam, you can try to search on google with: How to access facebook in Vietnam.
Yes, depends where you go. Even my own Netbook, which I've modded and works fine in HCMC, refused to fully load the page in Phu Quoc. Back in HCMC, working fine again. Mobile phone application has always worked 100%
What I do find amusing is that a big electrical outlet in HCMC as, as one of it's selling points for internet TV, is connect to Facebook! Go figure!

Its much easier to put Https before the address, or go online through f3.proxymice.com. No need to use ultrasurf or dns!

Damn, if there's a risk of it messing with my creative suite I won't get near facebook. Shoot, I got the fancy creative suite, the USD10 version in BKK as opposed to the USD3-4 one in PP.
