Will Government of India Ban Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and Other Social Media Sites?
I recently read the news that the Government of India is talking to the telecom network providers on ways to block popular social media like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter etc. in the interest of national security and preventing spread of fake news.
While there won't be a blanket ban on all the websites - the Government wants to figure out ways to selectively block some of the apps.
The Supreme Court of India is against any such blocking. Now, the government has to decide what it wants to do.
I thought maybe it'd be worth discussing what are the ways to prevent 'bad' use of social media so that it cannot be used to compromise national security.
