VIETNAM: Government Urges Social Media Advertising Boycott in Bid to Purge Dissident Content
The government has called for a boycott of social media advertisement until such platforms are free of any or all anti-government content. Already several multinational companies with operations in Vietnam have fallen in line with the directive, which is being billed as a temporary measure only.
A number of state-controlled enterprises, including Vinamilk and Vietnam Airlines, have also suspended their social media promotional campaigns.
