It is banned in China because the government cracked down on it.

I'm fairly sure it is banned in North Korea too. Similar to China, many websites are banned in these two countries.

Facebook is banned in China, Bangladesh,Pakistan, and islamic countries.
According to one source, Facebook was banned in Bangladesh because of the publication of satirical images of the prophet Muhammad on their site. Fortunately though, the ban was lifted after a week. Similarly, it was also banned in Pakistan for the same reason. It took two months before the ban was lifted in Pakistan though.

When facebook was banned in pakistan I come to know some of my friends were still using facebook.So,I asked how are you still active in facebook although it is banned.Then they say they can surf facebook through mozilla,chrome it was only band in IE.But,I am not sure if they had changed in port settings.

Anyways,it terms of china they are really strict on the things like this because facebook was also the one of the reason for currents moments in some countries.And Chinese have their own search engine which is also ranked in top 10 in alexa rank.In replace of facebook they use tancent QQ.
