Facebook-Myanmar collaborate to ban provocative posts during elections
August 25 , 2015
Myanmar is set to collaborate with social networking giant Facebook to remove any posts that may incite violence during the Nov 8 general elections, a media report said on Tuesday.
The country is set to go to the polls on November 8. Due to an increase in Facebook and mobile phone users across the country, authorities said they are concerned some netizens may use the medium to spread inaccurate information in the run-up to the elections as soon as campaigning starts next month.
