The search giant Google and social networking giant Facebook reports that they are getting more and more requests from governments of asiatic countries to remove/block the content from the users.
There has been very steep rise (almost 50%) of requests from governments of various countries such as India , Pakistan , China(of course!), Ukraine , Bolivia , Thailand and other countries such as U.K. and Canada.
The satires on government , military and police were the main reasons behind the requests of the removal or blockage. These events suggest that government of various countries fear the power of Internet (F*** yeah!) as it has helped to bring down the governments of Egypt, Libya etc .
However many of the requests were turned down by the Giants.(take the point that many of them were considered ).
All these question the freedom of speech of the people . Will it be free or come at a cost?
