    Lightbulb Twitter - Country wise total & partial bans

    Some countries can ban (and have banned) a number of social networking sites several times within in a couple of years for different reasons. Some of them get unblocked a few days later, some don't.





    Nice interactive map at: The World Social Networking Ban Race

    Is the data accurate ? It shows that blogger is banned in India!

    Blogspot was banned back in 2006 because they wanted to stop terrorists from using the blogs to communicate with each other.

    LOL, and apparently every site listed is banned here in the US.

    No, if you click any country and click the links, they all show banned!

    The info is correct but mis-leading.The term banned doesnt mean by the actual country it just mean by certain groups within that country.If you click on the UK it says Facebook is banned but on further reading it means that a city council (Portsmouth) banned its workers from using it at work because no work was getting done ...

    So as with everything on the net sometimes it can`t be taken at face value.

    Thanks for clarifying. I didn't click the more info.I just selected each and went with that.
