Tracking Social Media Bans

Center for Data Innovation: “Researchers at Surfshark, a cybersecurity company based in the Netherlands, have created a dataset tracking governments that have imposed restrictions on Internet service or social media companies from 2015 to the present. For each restriction, the dataset contains the dates, duration, affected population, available context, and notes on the restricted platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, Telegram, or Whatsapp. The dataset also lists local restrictions in India and disputed territory Jammu and Kashmir, as well as instances of miscellaneous outages or restrictions, such as telecommunications disruptions in Ukraine.”
