Which countries censor Facebook ?

With 1.2 billion users, Mark Zuckerberg’ social network is the most used web network in the world. However, it is still not available in many countries. Some governments block it, want to control the information or to use pure censorship … Here is a list of countries that block or censor Facebook.

Bangladesh
Internet and Facebook are indeed available in this country, but the State may at any time prohibits all the population or specific people to access it for its own reasons (censorship, control of information or ” blasphemous” aspects … )

Burma
Burma’s totalitarian regime has slightly loosened its grip on the population for the last two years, but the Internet (which exists since 2,000) is still controlled by the military junta. Therefore it is difficult to access unless bypassing censorship.

China
Internet exists in China, but is still very controlled. Here,Internet freedom of expression is almost equal to zero. If social networks like Weibo (chinese sort of Twitter) are very popular, however, it is still impossible to access Facebook, Twitter or Youtube.

Iran
The Iranian regime has slightly softened itself since the election of Hassan Rohani, with some discussions the United States, the use of Twitter or some recommendations given to the representatives of the Iranian government to be Facebook … But social networks are still not allowed in Iran upto today. Mahmoud Vaezi, the new telecommunications minister, said recently that “it is not expected that these social networks become legalized.”

North Korea
The most closed country in the world also controls access to the rest of the planet. Internet is logically prohibited there, whether it is Facebook or any other site. The few North Koreans found on the Internet are expats.

Pakistan
Like Bangladesh and Vietnam, Internet and Facebook are accessible in this country, but the State may at any time prohibit all the population or specific people to access a website for its own reasons (censorship, control of information or ” blasphemous” actions… )

Saudi Arabia
Internet is strictly controlled there. Your Facebook account must be approved by the monarchy. Needless to say that you have almost no chance to register.

Syria
If Bashar Assad strives to censor the Internet and Facebook in the midst of war, few Syrians are still able to circumvent the censorship and express themselves online.

Vietnam
Like Bangladesh and Pakistan, Internet and Facebook are accessible in this country, but the State may at any time prohibit everybody or specific indviduals to access it for its own reasons (censorship, control of information… )
