    Understand how people find, explore & convert on your site - Now free. google_proxy.jpg
    A simple Google search and you'll find dozens of really good PHP scripts on the Internet to help you create proxy servers in minutes for free. The only limitation with PHP based proxies is that you require a web server to host the proxy scripts and second, you also need a domain name to act as an address for your proxy site.
    If you don't own a domain or server space, you can still create a personal proxy server for free and that too without requiring any technical knowledge.

    Create a Free Proxy Server with Google App Engine Here's one such proxy site that you can build for your friends in China or even for your personal use (say for accessing blocked sites from office). This is created using Google App Engine and, contrary to what you assume, the process is quite simple.
    Step 1: Go to appengine.google.com and sign-in using your Google Account.
    Step 2: Click the "Create an Application" button. Since this is your first time, Google will send a verification code via SMS to your mobile phone number. Type the code and you're all set to create apps with Google App Engine.
    Step 3: Choose a sub-domain* that will host your proxy server. Make sure the domain is available, agree to the Google Terms and click save. The sub-domain is also your App ID that will uniquely identify your proxy application.
    For this example, we'll use labnol-proxy-server as the App ID though you are free to choose any other unique name.
    Step 4: OK, now that we have reserved the ID, it's time to create and upload the proxy server application to Google App Engine. Go to python.org, download the 2.6.4 MSI Installer and install Python.

    why i diD n0T uSe thE fAcebook siTe????

    Do you have any ad-Blockers? what is your firewall? any popup blockers?
    you may need to allow the website through your firewall if its not windows firewall
    if you have windows Firewall then an ad blocker/popup blocker is blocking it, allow www.facebook.com through that or turn off your ad blocker/popup blocker
    Q: why would an ad blocker/popup blocker block Facebook?
    A: Facebook contains elements that are often identified as ads or popups, Most of the content are popups/ads, and as such since the entirety of Facebook runs off popups/ads, that is blocked as a result of being identified as unsafe, do not be surprised, some websites are blocked like this that are actually safe and are otherwise known as False Positives in terms of spyware, viruses, Potentially unsafe websites, etc
    Q: Is there a solution? A: Yes, uninstall your popup/ad blocker IF you havent bought actually bought it and download and install Peerblock: http://www.peerblock.com/
    for your reference i have mine set to block: Anti-p2p Spyware Advertising
    and if you use Google Chrome or something that uses Google Chrome Extensions, install this, it doesnt block Facebook, but blocks all ads and saves your download bandwidth, i cant recommend this extension highly enough :) : https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?hl=en
