“Nepal has said it will ban TikTok, citing negative effects on the country’s ‘social harmony.’ The popular video-sharing platform, which has around a billion monthly users, has faced restrictions in many countries for alleged breaches of data rules and for the potentially harmful impact on youth of some content. ‘The decision to ban was made today, and relevant authorities are currently addressing the technical issues,’ the minister for communications and information technology, Rekha Sharma, said on Monday.” (11/14/23)
