How to access Facebook in Vietnam using hosts file under OSX

Many friends in Vietnam said they could not access Facebook because the government started blocking custom DNS like Google or Norton. So the only way left is to append Facebook IP address into your hosts file. Here how under Apple OSX 10.5.x or newer:

1. Open Terminal app
2. Type in sudo pico /private/etc/hosts
3. Append following:

153.16.15.71 facebook.com
153.16.15.71 www.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 apps.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 login.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 graph.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 static.ak.connect.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 developers.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 error.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 vupload.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 upload.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 register.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 bigzipfiles.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 pixel.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 secure.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 connect.facebook.com
153.16.15.71 channel.facebook.com

then Ctrl+X and Y to save.
4. Open Facebook.com and test.
