Algeria Government Blocks Social Media

Algeria has been under the scanner for a while because of the riots that have spread through the country. The riots broke out last week and is said to be instigated to protest the rise in prices. The protests have been suspected to have gained popularity, using the far reaching access of social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

The government of Algeria has tried to block these social networks for a while to reduce. According to a report in the Next Web

Social Media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube have been decisive tools activists and rioters use to expose governmental atrocities throughout the riots. These tools have also helped show the aggression expressed by Algerian youth towards public and private property

Therefore, the Algerian government went ahead and completely blocked social media in the aim to reduce the coordinating and organizing protests. Additionally, this ensured that the information of the protests were not reported to the rest of the world and were channelized through formal media.

As much as social media may be blocked in Algeria, social media has not blocked Algeria out of its burning issues. Many people outside and within Algeria have voiced their opinions on the crisis and hope that normalcy has been reinstated quickly in the country.
