Is there a need to have a vpn in Taiwan to get to Facebook or Youtube? Is it noticeably censored?

Why would it be censored? Not being a smartarse but what has led you to believe a VPN would be required?

I used to have trouble getting into demonoid.com, but that was my ISP's fault and not the government.

Why would there be any kind of censorship in a democratic country?

That's why I am asking... His username implies that he/she was or is in China, so that's the only reason I can think of...

Well...China's propaganda machine is pretty impressive, and they've managed to convince a lot of people that Taiwan is a part of China. I guess it makes sense that some people might think it's the same government over here with the same restrictions.

I sure hope I didn't open a can of baloney with this post...
