Facebook Moves to Protect Afghan Users’ Accounts Amid Taliban Takeover
Facebook has brought in new safety measures for users worried for their safety in Afghanistan, as the Taliban continue to cement their grip on power.
The firm says it “removed the ability to view and search the ‘Friends’ list for Facebook accounts in Afghanistan” to protect people from being targeted.
Professional networking site LinkedIn has also taken steps by hiding the connections of anyone in the country.
There are concerns the Taliban are using social media to track opponents.
