Hungary: Facebook Blocked Popular Far-Right Website

Hungarian news sites report that Facebook has blocked the most popular far-right website Kuruc.info. According to kuruc.info [hu], no referring links can be sent through Facebook's system, the Like button has disappeared, and Facebook is also blocking mentions of “Kuruc.info.” Kuruc.info wrote that the block was worse than similar measures in the communist China, encroaching on free speech and personal freedom. They also encouraged readers [hu] to file requests on Facebook to unblock the site. Many, however, welcomed Facebook's decision.
