Can you imagine spending a month without Facebook? The inhabitants of a small Asian country will have to do so.

Communications Minister Sam Bass announced that would investigate users posting pornography or false information, transmits BBC. It was also contemplated that the state would create a competitive social network.

Only 10% of the population of Papua New Guinea has access to the Internet. However, the number is growing rapidly and the authorities are very active in regulating online services.

Facebook has been sharply criticized after the scandal with the leak of personal data of millions of users, and because it allowed the spread of the "fake news" phenomenon.
