Myanmar Military Barred From Facebook & Instagram
Facebook on Thursday locked out Myanmar Military from accessing its Facebook and Instagram platforms with immediate effect following massive mass demonstrations that have been continuing in the Southeast Asian country after the military seized power on 1st February.
On the other hand the application also further added that the ban came due to extreme violation of human rights including abuses from the Myanmar military.
Facebook also added that the deadly violence precipitated the ban on both its platform and Instagram.
FB application also stated that the ban was imposed towards the military and its sub-units including the army controlled-media, ministries of home affairs, defense forces, alongside the border affairs which are now believed to be under direct military rule.
It is believed that Facebook is broadly used in Myanmar and has been the main way in which the Junta has been keeping in touch with its people, despite an official move to ban the platform in the early days of the Military.
