The Government is to implement a system to register those who use social media platforms, including Facebook, Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said.

Responding to journalists today, he said there should be a control over the anomalies caused by the users of social media and other networks, he said.

Hence, the Government has decided to control the social media platform usage, Minister Rambukwella said.

"After implementing the system, all those who surf Facebook should get themselves registered with the Government," he said.

Moreover, he said necessary arrangements have been made for self-regulation of media institutions. 

It will also be implemented in due course, the minister added.

    Who surf Social Media and get themselves registered to a dictatorial government must be crazy. All who use the Social Media should not register an account under their own name and not with a Sri Lankan email address. The best would be to use the dark net.
