Facebook Blocks Users from Sharing Pirate Bay Links

Story :

Facebook no longer allows its users to share links to The Pirate Bay on their timelines or in chat messages. The blockade follows similar measures taken against other pirate sites in previous weeks. This is not the first time Facebook has taken against against The Pirate Bay but the current measures go substantially further.

Ten years ago Facebook reached out to The Pirate Bay, asking the torrent site to remove the ‘share’ button from its site.

Today, more than a decade later, the “share” button on The Pirate Bay is long gone. Somewhere during this period, Facebook’s ban was also lifted. When the social media site started blocking several other torrent sites a few weeks ago, we noticed that TPB was not among them.

However, this changed recently. When we reviewed Facebook’s blocking efforts a few days ago we noticed that The Pirate Bay is now blocked as well. Similar to the other pirate sites, it apparently violates the platform’s “community standards.”
