North Korea Officially Blocks Facebook,YouTube and Twitter

Many people have been nursing this fear and suspicion for a long time now.It was only a matter of time before it would happen and here it is.

North Korea finally blocks the 3 main social media platforms ,Facebook,Twitter and YouTube in their country. Its not going to be funny for not,only the youths over their but for businesses as well.

what happens now?Time will surely tell.We keep on observing what goes on there.

North Korea has officially announced it is blocking Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and South Korean websites in a move underscoring its concern with the spread of online information.
 
The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications announcement was posted this week at the country's main mobile service provider, Koryolink, and other places serving Internet users.
Very few North Koreans have Internet access. Typically they can see only a sealed-off, government-sanctioned intranet. But foreigners had previously been able to surf the Web with almost no overt restrictions, though most likely with behind-the-scenes monitoring of their Internet activities.

The new restrictions will make it more difficult for visitors or the small community of foreign residents in North Korea to post real-time information about the country to the outside world, and will further limit the ability of North Koreans with Internet access to view information about their country posted elsewhere.

The government announcement named YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Voice of America and South Korean media sites as specific examples of what it is blocking "for a certain period of time."
It also said gambling and "sex and adult websites" have been blocked.
