Eventually, "Solomon Islands government’s plan to ban Facebook because of the posting of alleged abusive or defamatory comments against government ministers" however, it doesn't meant all of the people in Solomon islands do that! just maybe some people doing that by using abusive comments against government, with some they rightly use Facebook manageable to do important programmes such as business works.
Therefore my concern here is we don't need to ban Facebook,!! why? as for us business medias, Facebook is one of the easiest social media material to deal with business smoothly, like, it has many programmes even though it is a simple installer app, furthermore, it is very important for nowadays students and families to visit someone in media.
Hence, Facebook for Your Business?
*Customer Interaction: Having your business on Facebook through a fanpage or a group is a great way to learn more about your customers.
*Give a personal touch to your business: Being well connected is important for any business, especially for a small one.
*Develop a loyal fan base: Facebook allows you to develop your very own community.
Moreover, Facebook is one of the social media app where it fits our society, meanwhile, it well connected to 3G and 4G networks offer. THEREFORE, i don't support banning Facebook in our country!!!
Solomon Islands are not of the oppressive world but freedom of choice
