I'll be the first one to admit that I'm not a technically oriented guy, and I think that I'm not alone. There are a few other ways to log into Facebook in Vietnam, but the ways that I've listed below need relatively little effort when compared to some of the other free methods out there. I've seen a few tech-blogs out there with long lists of code and alterations to make to PC or Mac and after reading a line or two, I just got lost. Using a VPN or a web based proxy to log into Facebook in Vietnam is definitely the fastest, easiest, and most reliable way.
1. Choose whether you want a VPN or a proxy
VPNs are more secure. They'll encrypt your entire Internet device, be it a phone or a laptop. Software and applications that you run on it will also use the new IP address provided to you by the VPN service. In my experience, VPNs are also faster than proxies, but not everyone will agree with the. I think it's also more convenient to log into Facebook in Vietnam with a VPN because you haven't got to open any "secure browser" like with a proxy.
Proxies may be less secure, but who care's, we're not trying to take down government or do anything illegal here. Chances are, we don't need to worry about getting hacked either, and proxies are more secure than using nothing right? After all, they'll still provide you with a non-Vietnamese IP. Having the "secure browser" I mentioned above might be annoying to have to find, open, and always type your URL into it, but it's also convenient that you can access it anywhere. You can only use the VPN on computers you've installed it on, and it's usually a one licence per device limit unless you order more. With a web based proxy you can use it at work, at home, at school, and on the go (ie on your smart phone)
2. Choose a provider
You shouldn't have to pay more than 10 USD a month to change your IP address with a VPN or proxy service. 5-10 dollars is pretty standard. To log into Facebook in Vietnam, server locations, amount of servers, and amount of IP address aren't really that important. All you need is a non-Vietnamese IP, usually something located in The US or The UK will be best. Any provider with these locations available will good enough. Other things you can check out are live support vs email support, free trials, and return policies.
3. (Install and) Connect to the VPN or the proxy
That's pretty much all there is left to do. Depending on which kind of service you choose to log into Facebook in Vietnam, there may be specifics to installation, a short wait to receive secure links, or a set of login credentials sent to you by email. In most cases, after you pay for the service, you should be able to connect within a few minutes.
