regarding its websites outside China, as whatever Facebook is doing outside and in no relation to China has nothing to do with them. It should continue to maintain their privacy to the best of their level as leaking private contents with some one country might go wrong with another country. Recommendations After going through the whole case, it is crystal clear that Facebook needs to agree with the terms and conditions of China’s government if it wants to start their business in the world. It would also increase its overall profits in large numbers as China is the biggest market in the world at present with having more than 6 billion population. On the contrary, China also needs to understand the importance of Facebook in their country as it would give their people a chance to develop social relations with rest of the world. Also, China can use Facebook to control the cyber crime going on in the country to some extent by developing a software through Facebook which would notify them whenever any mischievous thing is expected to happen. Overall, it would be a win-win situation for both the sides, as Facebook can earn more money through China and China can use it for their own benefits.
