Despite there being 19 so-called “enemies of the world”, there are only 6 countries who actually block social media.
Dadaviz (Dadaviz is a data visualization company based in Tel Aviv) have put together a helpful graphic, showing who these are and which channels they block.
In 2014, Reporters Without Borders labelled 19 countries around the world as “enemies of the internet” for a number of reasons. For example, Britain is on the list due to its distributed denial of service attack against Anonymous, alongside North Korea, which has its own weird internet where users can’t access the global web.
Of the six countries, the least surprising has to be North Korea. It is the only country listed that is entirely closed off from social media. Although the other countries have bans in place, users can use VPNs to reroute their internet traffic and access websites that have been blocked.
