Social networking site Facebook has blocked a fast-growing page set up by a group of Malaysians against the controversial 100-storey tower proposed by the government.
While Facebook users can still join the ‘1M Malaysians reject 100-storey Mega Tower’ page, the page owners are however barred from posting any message on the site.
The anonymous owner has described Facebook’s action as a new form of Internet censorship.
“While new media offers room for social movements, the authoritarian governance by the Internet giants like Facebook has sunk to a new form of censorship,” said one of the creators of the page yesterday after discovering he was blocked from the site.
