The Mongolian government has banned the use of social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube by civil servants while at work.

The government made the decision on May 23, while it took effect Tuesday.

The move is said to be intended to prevent cyber attacks and to ensure the safety of government information networks, according to a statement released by the country’s communications and information technology authority.

Mongolia’s general intelligence agency will help monitor the ban’s implementation.

In March 2016, government workers in Tanzania were also banned from using social media and chat apps during work hours.

Transport and communication ministry officials were warned that “gossiping” on social media will lead to dismissal.

Cheap phone data bundles are said to enable wider use of platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter in Tanzania.
