Facebook removes Critical Spectator page for violating its policies
SINGAPORE - Facebook has taken down the Critical Spectator page run by a Polish national in Singapore, Mr Michael Petraeus, ahead of the general election on Friday (July 10).
In response to queries, a Facebook spokesman said on Wednesday (July 8) that the company has recently taken action on several accounts and pages in Singapore for violating its policies.
«This is based on the violating behaviour of these accounts and pages and not based on the content they posted,» the spokesman added.
Facebook declined to provide details of these other accounts or pages it said had been taken down recently.
Last month, it took action against several accounts for misrepresentation as part of measures to protect the integrity of Singapore's general election.
One of them is a Facebook page called Fabrications About the PAP (FAP) with more than 250,000 likes. It was taken down for violating Facebook's policies.
