Social media ban to be lifted in a few hours

The ban on all social media networks are expected to be lifted by today (12), the State Minister for National Policy and Economic Affairs Harsha de Silva said while addressing parliament yesterday.

He stressed that this temporary ban was essential as any news including, fake and sensitive content can spread through social media.  The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) temporarily blocked the services of social media, including, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, YouTube and Instagram on Wednesday (7) to control the spread of malicious content.
