France bans Facebook and Twitter from radio and TV

In France, radio and television news anchors are no longer allowed to say the words “Facebook” and “Twitter” on air. The ban forbids the promotion of commercial enterprises on news programs  by the French Govt.


This means French news organizations are not allowed to urge their audience to “follow me on Twitter at” or “check out my Facebook page at” Instead, they will have to say “find us on social networking websites” or tell viewers to “check out our webpage ‘at this URL’ to find links to our pages on social networks.
