China blocks google, facebook and twitter from their side and these 3 organizations complained that china is censoring internet freedom all the while they are enforcing CHINA LEVEL CENSORSHIP. Yes, China Level Censorship is the in thing of the internet giants. So why are they complaining about china censoring the internet while they are doing exactly the same?
China pretty much blocked the sites from entering it because it’s scared of a color revolution takeover, but the way that the internet giants are acting makes it seem like a hypocritical deal.
Facebook bans Britain First group (Chinese Net Censorship Has Begun)
Facebook has removed the pages of the anti-Islamic group Britain First and its leaders.
The social media company said the group had repeatedly violated its community standards.
Earlier this month, Britain First’s leader and deputy leader, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, were jailed after being found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment.
More than two million people had liked the group’s Facebook page.
The pages of Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen also had large followings.
Facebook says the decision to remove the pages was made after Britain First had ignored a final warning about the posting of material that broke its community standards.
The group will not be allowed to set up a replacement page.
The inventor of the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has hit out against the major tech companies saying they have become too dominant.
On the 29th birthday of the internet, the British computer scientist has published an open letter saying that the web is under threat and needs saving.
Berners-Lee, who runs an initiative focusing on advancing the internet as a public right named Web Foundation, has accused tech giants of spreading misinformation, questionable political advertising, and causing people to lose control over their personal data.
“The fact that power is concentrated among so few companies has made it possible to weaponise the web at scale,” writes Berners-Lee.
