Facebook has been banned in Saudi Arabia over moral concerns, according to reports. It seems as though the popular social-networking site doesn't meet the high standards of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Basically Facebook is morally corrupt.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity,Â says Saudi Arabia'sÂ Communications and Information Technology Commission blockedÂ Facebook onÂ Saturday and an error message shows up when Internet users try to access it.
He said Facebook's content had "crossed a line" with the kingdom's very conservative morals. He also said that blocking the site is a temporary measure, until they find a more permanant option.
Saudi Arabia follows a strictÂ code of Islam and Saudi Arabia'sÂ religious leaders have aÂ strong influence over policy making and social behaviors.
Other countries to ban Facebook include Pakistan and Bangladesh.Â Both countriesÂ imposed temporary bans on Facebook earlier this year.
Can you imagine if the US government banned Facebook? People would be lost without it. How would they know what their friends were up to or how their farmville farm is running? It'd be a major catastrophe. Luckily for the people of Saudi Arabia, Facebook has not been around long enough for them to get addicted. Now that it's banned, they won't be going through withdrawal - like the rest of the world - because they never had the chance to get addicted in the first place.
