Why you shouldn’t take this blog for granted


Admittedly the first image that ran through my head when I had heard the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had ‘shut down’ the Internet in his country was of a huge red oversized light switch being pushed into the ‘OFF’ position.  Once the cartoon image had left my mind a weird feeling of confusion ran through my body smothering any laughable thought.  Can the Egyptian president really just turn off the Internet? Can President Obama ‘turn off’ the Internet?

“America, the champion of democracy and freedom, actually has more Internet censorship than some countries in Africa and South America according to an infographic based on Internet censorship research conducted by the OpenNet Initiative,” says Zachary Sniderman, blogger at Mashable.com.

In regards to the type of censorship placed in most countries, that is where the title of this post stems.  Out of all types of Internet activity/content, blogs were the most censored making up nearly 20% while ‘militant groups’ only garnered 1% of censored material.

Have you ever run into censorship laws while traveling overseas?  Have you ever had any issues with America’s level of ‘Some Censorship’?  Please answer in the comments below.

Until next time buyers, sellers and friends!
