Indonesia Tries to Remove Terrorism Related Content from Facebook, Telegram

JAKARTA – The Indonesian government met on Wednesday with a representative of the social network Facebook a day after meeting with the head of the messaging application Telegram amid efforts to tackle terrorist related material online.

The Communications and Information Ministry explained that social network firms have to adapt to the new regulations of the country and be more efficient while responding to reports of radical content, according to an official statement.

Facebook’s representative in the Asia-Pacific, Jeff Wu, said they will work towards improving the management of negative content in Indonesia.

The authorities at Jakarta blocked the online version of Telegram around the middle of July due to proliferation of terror content, and threatened to extend the measure to the application for smartphones.

The Department of Communication and Information announced following Tuesday’s meeting with Telegram CEO Pavel Durov that it will lift the blockade on Telegram once it updates its protocols regarding terror content.

Durov said Telegram his very concerned about the threat posed by global terrorism, especially in Indonesia.

Representatives from Australia, Brunei, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and New Zealand met on Saturday in the Indonesian city of Manado and agreed to increase cooperation and exchange of information in order to deal with the threat posed by Islamist terrorism.

This cooperation includes social networking firms.
