Facebook to be banned in Papua New Guinea for a month


Papua New Guinea will ban Facebook for a month while it identifies fake profiles and considers the website's effect on the country, APA reports quoting BBC.

 

Communication minister Sam Basil said users posting pornography and false information would be identified.

 

He also suggested the country could set up its own rival social network.

 

Facebook has faced scrutiny following the Cambridge Analytica scandal and has been criticised over the way it has tried to tackle fake news.
