Social Media Usage in Sri Lanka.

Social Media Usage in Sri Lanka is used to be monitored by the Government authorities to prevent spreading of fake News and to prevent hate speech in the Island. As per Sri Lanka President's advice the Sri Lanka ISP Network companies had lifted the ban on certain Social media Apps and websites. So in Sri Lanka the Facebook, Viber, Snapchat and YouTube can be accessed as normal like any other Democratic country. Tourist can save lot of money when they can use Sri Lanka's cheapest Data plan through their Smartphones.

As a foreigner you can use the social media without any Ban or any other kind of blockage. You will be responsible for your content and always do a self sponsorship when using the online medias. Sri Lanka uses the latest technology to catch any person who makes blunders in the social media websites.

Due to attack on public on the Easter Sunday, Sri Lanka Government had stopped following websites and their Apps through the Sri Lankan ISP companies. They are Facebook, Whatsapp, Viber, Snapchat and YouTube. This is to prevent spreading false rumors and News though these media to the general public. When everything is under control according to the security Forces, the ban will be lifted. During the last communal riots, lot of fake news and images were distributed through the social media and it had spread more violence throughout the country. At that time Sri Lanka Government had found out the social media was the culprit to spread the fake news and images..So they banned these websites and apps and when the situation became smooth they allowed the social media to be operated normally. Also there is a night time curfew applies from 10:00pm till 04:00am. So there will be no trains or busses will operate during these hours.

Social Media in Sri Lanka usage is at its best. No social media website or Apps had been banned or blocked in Sri Lanka. Lot of people are using them, including tourists in Sri Lanka without any problems. But the Sri Lanka Government is watching what is going in the social media, specially for fake News and Messages.

Sri Lanka is one of the true Democratic countries in the world. In the month of March 2018, some bad elements had used this free to speech and express facility through the social media to create communal unrest. But in time the Sri Lanka Government took necessary action and blocked people from accessing Facebook, Whatsapp and Viber through SLT. And in the mean time it had requested the mobile phone service providers to block them too. If you are in doubt, call SLT hotline 1212 to hear if there are any blockage applies.

As of today not any Social media is not blocked or banned in Sri Lanka.

Violence in the Kandy region is seized and the Government had allowed the Facebook, Whatsapp and Viber messengers to operate Island wide. So the visiting tourists can use them as usual while they are staying in Sri Lanka. Skype is not affected at all and its services are being carried out normally. Officials from Facebook were in Srilanka and had talks with the Sri Lanka Government officials on how to control the posts in the Facebook.

It is surprising news that during these Apps and services were blocked, the Government controlled SLT made millions of Rupees of profit through its phone call service. Because people were using the normal IDD facility during that period in Sri Lanka, thus their income increased. So here by we inform the country is back to its normal path and the tourists can come over here and can enjoy their stay as usual without any hassles. Business is operating as normal and the transport system is back to normal level.
