Facebook cracks deal in Vietnam

Facebook, which has been blocked on-and-off in Vietnam, has just signed an agreement with FPT Corporation becoming a Preferred Developer Program Consultant. This partnership will cover the promotions and selling of ads for Facebook in Vietnam. It will also include involvement in development of the official mobile application for the Vietnamese market, according to an article in Genk.vn.

This may be a clever move by Facebook. With one more local partner in Vietnam fighting for Facebook’s interests, the platform may be better equipped to avoid an all-out blockage.
