Facebook is widespread in the country of over 50 million people. In mid-February, the company announced that the situation in Myanmar was viewed as “an emergency”. First, several military and military accounts were restricted in their reach so that fewer people could see the content distributed through them. Facebook had justified this with spreading false information about these accounts.

Initially, the military had even blocked Facebook themselves

However, this also makes it clear that the Tatmadaw True News Information Team’s page is not the only one of the military on Facebook. © www.de24.news The  armed forces can therefore continue to use the platform according to Facebook’s current approach.

Immediately after the coup, the junta blocked Facebook in the country itself, thus depriving the opposition of an important means of communication.

Opponents of the military had called for protests via the social network.
