An Ethiopian media owner and online activist known for his active use of Facebook has been blocked by the platform.
It is not the first time Facebook is blocking Jawar Mohammed’s account on the basis of hyperactivity – “posting too fast,” as they chose to put it.
Jawar on Wednesday confirmed via his verified Twitter account that he had been “temporarily blocked,” on Facebook. “It looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You’ve been blocked from using it,” he was informed.

The United-States based activist slammed Facebook over the block but announced a new page through which he planned to continue his work.
