Larger social networks such as Facebook may be next
Russian authorities have forced both Apple and Google to remove the professional social network LinkedIn from their app stores. The country slowly began blocking its citizens from using the online site in November 2016, after a law was passed ordering all local internet user data to be stored on Russian servers. Following the new law, LinkedIn refused to comply with the order and it has been reported by The New York Times that the social network stopped working correctly on user’s devices, after which Apple and Google were forced to remove it completely. The past blocking of the social network was criticised in some quarters as being part of a growing culture of censorship in the country. However, even though LinkedIn has been removed from Russia, larger social networks in the country which violate the same laws have yet to be affected, such as Facebook. The Russian government has not commented as to why these larger social networks have not yet been asked to comply with the new law.
