Reuters reveals Vietnam threatens to shut down Facebook in country

Reuters revealed that Vietnam has threatened to shut down Facebook in the country if it does not bow to government pressure to censor more local political content on its platform. Facebook complied with a government request in April to significantly increase its censorship of “anti-state” posts for local users, but Vietnam asked the company again in August to step up its restrictions of critical posts. The latest request included a threat to shut down Facebook altogether in Vietnam, a major market for the social media company where it earns revenue of nearly $1 billion.
