Is Facebook entering China or not is a question asked by many now Facebook is heading for an IPO. Internet watcher Sam Flemming sees a hard time ahead for the company, not because of government restrictions, but because of fierce competition, he tells Reuters.

Reuters:

“The Chinese have been social for years, and Facebook would be just one more option among many,” said Sam Flemming, founder of Shanghai-based social media consultancy, CIC.

“It certainly would have a certain amount of cache, especially among the more internationalized Chinese and foreigners living in China, but it would need a big push in awareness beyond this small group,” Flemming said.
