Facebook has closed the army’s main account in Myanmar, where protests continue after the military coup. The reason for Facebook’s closure of the Myanmar army’s account was “violation of the ban on violence.”
A statement from Facebook on the closure of the Army account said: “As part of our global policy, we have closed our account as a result of the Tatmadaw True News Information Team Page, which has disrupted our community. By repeatedly inciting standards to violence.”
