Facebook ban considered

Samoa govt looking to ban Facebook

A report by TV1Samoa details Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi saying that many people had complained about the popular social media platform and how it was being used to hurt people.

"I am thinking about this a lot especially how it is being used to make defamatory statements about others," he said.

Tuilaepa himself has been a victim of personal attacks on Facebook, and had even taken some bloggers to court for defamation.
