Facebook says it is ready to make changes under the central government’s new IT law. Facebook’s decision comes ahead of a new IT law in India on May 26. But Facebook said it needed to clarify some issues with the government.
In February 2021, the Union IT Ministry directed social media, including WhatsApp, Facebook, and Twitter, to implement the new IT Act.
Three months were allotted for this. This period ends today. Only the Indian version of Twitter, Koo, has implemented the central government’s new social media guidelines.
As per the new directive of the Central Government, an employee from India should be posted on the social media platform. This person will be responsible for resolving complaints related to posts on social media, checking content, and removing posts if necessary. This applies not only to social media platforms but also to OTs.
It is not yet clear whether the central government will affect the operation if it does not comply with the directive
