The Chinese government is afraid of the Internet and the network censors!

Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat: All Social Network foreigners were censored!
The Chinese government has realized that the only way to avoid what happened in the “Arab Spring,” is to censor the Internet.
Social Networks: Facebook first, documented the revolt of what the Arab television censored.
But the technology is more powerful than any regime and dictatorship, and was born FireChat
to allow users of this App to communicate even without the Internet, or Wi-Fi connections.
FireChat had been created for the concerts and / or in situations where many people are concentrated in an area without the Internet.
And instead FireChat it has become the main communication tool for the protests in Hong Kong, China to democracy.
This app works both for iPhone and for mobile phones with Android and turns mobile phones in walkie-talkie. It also makes also send messages offline.

FireChat began to spread in Asia, thanks to the “protest of sunflowers” in Taiwan.
In Hong Kong the app in a single weekend has been downloaded more than 100,000 times, in China.

weigh up, before going to invest in these countries.
The freedom to communicate is priceless and is not a cost!
