The government of Papua New Guinea are banning the social networking site, Facebook for a month.

Sam Basil, the country's communication minister suggested that it would allow them to remove false information from the social networking platform. He also suggested that the country could develop their own rival site to Facebook.

Facebook has recently came under controversy after the Cambridge Analytica scandal earlier this year.

Even though 10% of people in the country have internet access, the country's government are still proactive in regulating online activity.
