Facebook is now a fakebook: Joy


MNA Science Desk: The young generation’s addiction to social media is gradually taking an alarming turn, said Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy on Sunday.

‘Seeing their addiction to the internet, I’ve to say that Facebook is now a fakebook,’ he said while inaugurating the two-day Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Summit at a city hotel.

Joy said hated speeches on the internet that push the young generation to confrontation can in no way be called open speech. ‘This can’t be supported at all,’ he said.

The ICT expert said the government is taking a stern stance against the spread of false propaganda and communal and confrontational statements using digital media.
