For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Changchun Friends

a great way to get involved

Hello everybody, Since I'm in China, I use freegate as a proxy to go on youtube or facebook.

But since 2 days, it doesn't work anymore even the new version.

So I would like to know if u know an other way to have access to youtube? For creating lesson it's really a big problem to have a censure internet!


Thanks a lot

'VPN' - you can buy online :)

You could try Hotspot Shield.

I think you will find that all the free proxies and vpn's stop working after a while.

You could buy one, its about $60 a year.

Facebook however is accessible, but again is not reliable. Try 

This will bring up a page with a picture of facebook, click on it and you should get in!


I've been using Hotspot Shield for three years and it hasn't stopped working once.

Lucky you, I had problems with that specific one. I bought one, clean as a whistle, no lag!
But hopefully she sees the Facebook link, that was my main point:)
