Facebook blocked for sake of 'stability'....Myanmar Military Coup.

Ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi has now been remanded in detention until 15 February, prompting citizens to form a Civil Disobedience Movement group on the social media platform. More than half of Myanmar's population are Facebook users, and the platform's app - which can be used without data charges in the country - makes up more than 90% of the country's total social media use. Facebook previously admitted failing to do enough to prevent the Myanmar military inciting violence against the country's minority Rohingya population.
The company banned 20 high-ranking Myanmar military officials in August 2018 for racist language and posts celebrating massacres of members of the ethnic minority group.
Soldiers in the Myanmar army have confessed to carrying out orders to exterminate Rohingya men, women, and children before burying the bodies in mass graves.
