Algeria ban social media to curb exam leakage

1 min read

 Social media sites nowadays are used for many purposes: not only the good but also the bad thats why Algeria has said that it has temporarily blocked Facebook and some other social media networks to stop cheating in upcoming school exams.

The move follows leaks of papers and exam questions online ahead of retakes.

In a statement Sunday, the Ministry of Post and Information and Communication Technology said that the

“cut of social networks has a direct relationship with the matriculation exams”

which begin Sunday.

The ministry said that the unusual move was made to protect students from “phony topics” that might appear on social media.

It added that all other parts of the internet were not affected.
