Considering Facebook dangerous, Prime Minister’s honorable ICT Advisor Sajeeb Wazed Joy said-Facebook is nothing but ‘Fakebook’ to me. It can’t be controlled. He shared such thought in the inauguration ceremony of BPO Summit 2018 taken place at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, Dhaka, today. Mr. Joy was the chief guest of the program.
He said- Facebook is dangerous. Many of us use this social media. My wife Christina very often browses Facebook. I call it ‘Fakebook’. It’s totally fictitious and a fake world. It doesn’t have any limit. It can’t be controlled. Even, it can’t be blocked. Nothing can be prevented through blocking in internet. Even, the users wouldn’t like to do so.
He also added- To comment in Facebook is anyone’s freedom of speech. But, no one should cause any provocation through this platform. Our government has prepared a draft of Digital Security Act. This act would aim to prevent interference in anyone’s freedom of speech, any kind of provocation and also aim to ensure security of the minority.
