Turkey may ban Facebook and YouTube

Turkish authorities may ban Facebook and YouTube after March 30 local elections, Turkey's Prime Minister Suthep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with ATV television channel broadcast late on Thrusday.

"We are determined on this subject. We will not leave this nation at the mercy of YouTube and Facebook. We will take the necessary steps in the strongest way," Erdogan stressed, adding that a possible ban on these online resources was included in prospective measures. "These people or organizations encourage every kind of immorality and espionage for their own ends. And there are no boundaries. Such concept of freedom is unacceptable," he added.

Social networks have become a convenient platform for those who oppose Erdogan, as they can distribute compromising information about the leader via Internet, including wiretapped telephone conversations and corruption scandal details.
