Keeping in touch via social network while in China

If you are a social media addict and worried about not being able to get connected overseas, fret no more, you can now rent mobile pocket wifi to use.

Many of my friends were surprised when they saw me continuously posting from my Instagram and Facebook while in China, and none more then myself as well...because well, practically a lot of people know how Mainland China blocks Facebook, Instagrams and a few other sites , and even when there is free WiFi around you can never access these sites....

I had gotten two mobile WiFis to use for my daughter and myself. One was from Company A (not the real name of course, and for privacy purposes) and the other was from Wiyo. 

I had to collect the Company A mobile WiFi somewhere in KL and the Wiyo WiFi from Solaris Dutamas which is just at Publika .

My daughter used the Company A mobile WiFi and I used the Wiyo WiFi…because I was the active user, and Company A told me their pocket mobile WiFi would last just about 4 hours... whereas the Wiyo I had was said to last me a good 10 hours at least and I can also use it as a powerbank... I was impressed... hehehe

It was thanks to this that we both managed to keep in touch with our loved ones and friends back here in Malaysia and other places.

Company A mobile WiFi lets my daughter call her friends and sister via WhatsApp and message them, share pictures with them and also via WeChat. But when she tried to access Facebook and Instagram, she could not do it, than again it is hard to access any Instagram or Facebook when in China, even Google… My daughter was quite frustrated by not being able to access Instagram and Facebook via Company A mobile WiFi, so I allowed her to access my Wiyo .

However , Wiyo pocket mobile WiFi was a step above it… I was most pleasantly surprised to be able to access both my Instagram and my Facebook without any hitch, anywhere at all….

If you are headed to China, and/or anywhere at all, you should know which pocket mobile WiFi you would want to go for…

Thank you Wiyo for allowing me to continuously and effortlessly keep in touch with all my friends, family, followers etc..... !!!! And yes, you can share up to 10 pax per WiFi if you choose to do so... so it is even more awesome for family or group travel!!!
