Why Internet censorship? Many countries block different websites for several reasons. This directly affects education, information flow and sometimes even small businesses. Take an example of YouTube. Users watch tutorial videos on YouTube. Companies and individuals upload and share videos related to their business. Many individuals have started their own video channels to share what they have learned so that others can learn from them which can be any skill or even a tip to speed up computer. Blocking useful and popular websites is not a solution to anything. Its like taking away freedom. Sure, users can find other websites to share their stuff and videos on, but it will take a lot of time for those new websites to be able to fulfill requirements for all the internet community. Even established video communities can not compete with YouTube yet.
Currently some countries blocked FaceBook and then the YouTube for some reasons involving social causes (to avoid general public and social disturbance). The unwanted content for some nations could cause much problem for general public overall so the governments and officials tried to persuade FaceBook and YouTube to remove the unwanted content which could hurt particular public feelings and afterward when they did not listened those countries banned and blocked these sites for whole public in their countries overall. This also caused a huge traffic and revenue loss to FaceBook and YouTube but we are not talking about that. This raised some approvals from public which was in favor of punishing YouTube and FaceBook on ‘not listening to the public feelings towards some sacred issues’ but many publishers and business people had really terrible ‘WTF Moments’ of their lives because they could not watch their favorite videos, information, technology updates, trailers, tutorials and more online. YouTube is also a learning resource where people watch tutorials and learn huge stuff they can’t at school. So, well if you are one of those people who desperately need to get their work going at YouTube then here is the way you can unblock YouTube. No! I am not giving you proxies. Proxy sites are spam and most of them do not work.
Colleges, Universities and Offices tend to stop you being social online. They sometimes block the best social websites. Good practice is to not use these websites at such places (Don’t try to be social online in colleges or offices. You have got colleagues or college mates to do that) but in case of some important stuff or emergency, you can use web proxy sites and servers to unblock YouTube, Orkut, FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter. And you can use Google to unblock any blocked website. Precisely speaking, Google can serve to be a proxy server itself.
