Tired of fake accounts and pornography spread via Facebook, Papua New Guinea has become the latest country to take umbrage with the social media giant.
 
The government of PNG says it is shutting off the country’s access for one month, Papua New Guinea’s Post-Courier reports.
 
The temporary shutdown will allow researchers to comb through Facebook and analyze who is using the platform and how, according to a government official.
 
“The time will allow information to be collected to identify users that hide behind fake accounts, users that upload pornographic images, users that post false and misleading information on Facebook to be filtered and removed,” Communications Minister Sam Basil told the Post-Courier.
 
“This will allow genuine people with real identities to use the social network responsibly,” he added.
