Citing various bloggers, The Wall Street Journal on Thursday, Jun 30 reported that China had blocked Google+. Other media publications also carried the report as the Chinese government prevails a stricter internet censorship policy.
But, on Friday, Jul 1, numerous websites and blogs reported that they are able to login to the site and able invite others also. It suggests that the earlier problems may occurred due to some technical glitches.
According to The Shanghaiist website, the troubles logging onto Google+ stemmed from a technical flaw. The report added, "The irregularity of speed probably has something to do with the fact that Google+ automatically routes you through an HTTPS secure connection, which has been known to cause problems."
But it seems like Chinese government was looking into the matter seriously. While we analyse the stranded relationship between search engine Google and China, it's likely to ban the Google+ also.
Earlier, Google accused Chinese hackers of attacking to Gmail accounts. Also, the California-based company blamed the Chinese government blocking its Gmail service in the country. But, China government rejected all these claims and alleged Google of being a "political weapon" of the West against China.
Google had pulled out it search engine service out of China after a series of fight with the government. Since then, Google and China have been engaged in Cold War.
