Facebook, Twitter, YouTube Are Reportedly Blocked in Pakistan

After putting off-air the News channels, the government of Pakistan has apparently ordered ISPs to block Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in Pakistan.

Reports from ProPakistani readers are confirming that Facebook and other social media websites are not accessible on desktop and mobile browsers.

However, these websites can be accessed through mobile apps for some users while they are unavailable for some app users as well.

While we don’t have confirmations, a number of users in Pakistan are reporting that Facebook and some other social media websites are not accessible for them.

Not to mention, government of Pakistan took severe decisions after its operation against protesters in Faizabad backfired and protests erupted across the country.

Currently the Facebook and other social media websites are not accessible on major ISPs in Pakistan but we are still in process of arranging an official confirmation on the ban of Facebook in Pakistan.

Update:

ARY News is claiming that Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are ordered to be blocked in Pakistan.

Update 2:

It appears that the crack-down on internet also include the banning of Daily Motion, Instagram and some other social networking websites as well.

ZemTV.com is also blocked in the country at this point in time.

Update 3: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to Remain Blocked Till Further Notice!

  • It’s a temporary shutdown of all major Social Media websites in Pakistan.

  • Shahid Rizvi

    Unlawfully closure of tv channels reflect shattering confidence of government – observing the danger situation ”shater-murgh ki tarah reit (dust) mein mounh chupa liya”. Is it 02/3rd majority of PML-N’s democracy – shame – it is actually ”excessive fueling on fire” — one day it would be realized.

  • Talal

    Install Browsec VPN Extension in your chrome/UC Browser/Opera from Chrome Web Store or on Firefox from Addons store, turn it on and you can open any blocked site like Youtube, Twitter and blah blah. On your phone, Install Opera VPN or any other VPN and you can access these sites.

  • namjoon

    uhh whats happening in Lahore cuz I didn’t see anything yesterday.. someone catch me up

  • namjoon

    Its not the end of the world although for many people it might feel like it at this moment not having social media should be at the least of our worries at this moment when people are dying , sent to the hospital and crying . Families are crying because right now they just lost someone who they have cherished all their life so taking about VPNS or some shit is not gonna help us in any way .

    They can’t close twitter and Facebook forever . This will just reflect on what type of humans we are . Are we selfish and only think of ourselves sitting at home complaint to our friends go oh I wanted to see that music video or are we going to actually care for others and be doing something about it . I don’t know what we can do to help at the moment because even if anyone who is supporting no side and who will just try to help will end up being misunderstood but anything is better than this . Than talking about how this isn’t working . Yes all of us will make jokes of how the politicians are the worst on the Earth and are corrupt but the thing is we have stooped ourselves to their level when we talk about them, as we are doing the same in a way . We are not helping the society in any way and we are not caring for other humans who are no different from us . It does not matter where we are from , which background or what we did all that matters is are we ever going to change or will the gossip of politics be continued at every family dinner , party and conversation. Were never going anywhere but down because of not our politicians because of us as a country . They are a percentage of people who are not like that yet no one really knows that percentage because they are hidden under the cloaks of corruption but the point is We are not any better , We voted for this and this is what happens , We made dense choices and We are bringing this country which was so specially made for us through so much difficulties down. If one person wants to make a change lets take me as an example I want to make a change to the politics and bribery of our government , I will go against whatever wrong that will come my way and if a bullet goes through my arm or I am blasted by a bomb or I am murdered I do not care as long as I have said what I have wanted to say I am done. Because my job of delivering a message to a world or society is done I have delivered but it is up to you if you even heard what I said when I was right next to my death .. You see this might annoy you but you can’t completely say that every single word here is wrong because you know that even out of these words there is truth there and its only going to be forgotten by people just seeing how to get their Youtube to work again but I delivered my message so now its your turn will you apply it or am i a forgotten moment stuck in a forgotten article after a year .

    All I can say is bye and lets just hope for the best and the least deaths.

    Thanks for reading this and understanding what I mean from my heart thanks a lot and If you don’t understand or don’t care or like simply hate me well I don’t really care because I can feel That Im already being forgotten.

  • Ahmed

    Assalam o alikum……
