Some social media applications blocked in Ethiopia

August 5,2016

Unconfirmed report from Ethiopia says that major social media platforms are blocked in some parts of the country. At this writing it was able to confirm that Whatsup and Viber applications are blocked in Addis Ababa.

As things stand now, Gonder seem to be the target of social media blockade. Facebook connection is very erratic.

It also seem to be the case that facebook is slow and sometimes even interrupted in Adama (Nazreth). Other popular platforms including Viber, Whatsup and IMO seem to be blocked entirely.

Ahead of planned demonstrations for tomorrow and the day after in North Western Ethiopia and Oromia reigions of Ethiopia, there is a possibility for total social media blockade in Ethiopia -according to informants from Ethiopia.
