One of the benefits of the Internet is that it allows for a free exchange of information throughout the world. However, there are governments that want to control the information its citizens are allowed to view or hear.
Internet Monitor’s aim is to evaluate, describe, and summarize the means, mechanisms, and extent of Internet content controls and Internet activity around the world.
This week, the governments of both Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo shut down the Internet in their respective countries. For more information, please visit the Internet Monitor’s weekly summary.
The website also provides a nifty dashboard tool with which you can customize data visualizations about the Internet throughout the world.
